A man in a kilt is included in this week’s Thursday Doors.
He was standing very still on Shop Street in Galway City and I hadn’t time to wait and see if he would play some music. I would say his cosutme was Dutch because of the wooden clogs next to his stand – but I could be wrong. Does anyone know the nationality or the instrument? Oh, and the door was quite nice, too. It’s part of a castle.
Lynch’s Castle was acquired by Allied Irish Banks in 1930 and restored to its former splendour. A carved doorway was added in 1933, the work of L. Cambell, a Dublin Architect. The building hasn’t really changed that much over the years.
On another street an interesting door caught my eye because of it’s size, particularly in relation to the windows.
To show you how small this doorway actually is, my sister obliged me with a pose. She’s five foot seven, so you can see how low that arch is. The green door behind her was set back to give more head room.
