LIBERTY LANE ON ST PATRICK’S DAY 2022
This laneway was unusually busy today as people used it as a short cut or in order to avoid the crowds lining the streets because of the St. Patrick’s Day parade.
In the past I described this as a laneway at the side of Kevin Street College but as the building has been demolished this is no longer a valid description as the. In fact, as I only discovered a few months ago, it was never an accurate description because South Church Lane is the the laneway that was at the side of the college.
Some historians claim that Liberty Lane off Lower Kevin Street once extended all the way to the canal at Portobello. However, today it does little more than connect Lower Kevin Street to Camden Row but of course it does provide back entrances to a number of pubs and restaurants. According to the 1862 Dublin Street Directory it went from Kevin-street Lr to Camden-row.
The St Patrick’s Day Parade was cancelled in 2019 and 2020 and I had received a press pass for the 2019 event a few days before it was cancelled and I was really upset. This year the government added a second public holiday to compensate for the impact of covid on previous celebrations.
This year I decided not to apply for media accreditation and not to to photographed the parade. However I walked around the city centre photographing at random using an iPhone 12 Pro Max. Maybe, I will photograph next year.
