Thursday Doors – Around the Town

This week’s Thursday Doors are from random streets around the town of Dundalk. I featured the first one a couple of weeks ago but this image is from a different angle. Of course, I had to include a red door in at least one of these photos.

Mind you, I’m quite partial to a grey door, especially when it’s surrounded by such lovely pillars.

The next photograph is of the courthouse, designed by Edward Parke and John Bowden in the Neoclassical style  and modeled on the Temple of Hephaestus in Athens. It was completed in 1819.

A stone sculpture, The Maid of Erin, stands in front of the courthouse as a memorial to the Irish rebellion of 1798.

Another example of metal artwork that can be found around the town

Thanks for stopping by. Next week we’ll have a coffee and a wee bit of history along with it. For lots more Thursday Doors carry on over to Norm’s blog.

    I love the building with the red door. The grey door looks imposing, but it is very nice. The courthouse is magnificent. I agree with Norm, it’s how a courthouse should look. I think my favorite view is the stone wall in the first image.

    Your first capture: weathered, but I like it:) The grey door – I am partial to pillars and arches – what a beautiful frame to this grey door! The statue of the Irish rebellion is beautiful and poignant:)

    The grey paint of the building makes the red door really pop out!
