GREAT AND LITTLE STRAND STREET CROSSES CAPEL STREET
There are two sections to Strand Street the section from Lower Liffey Street to Capel Street is Great Strand Street and upon crossing Capel Street is becomes Little Strand Street.
Up until now the street would not have attracted much attention other than it hosted the DublinBikes Docking Station No. 46 which has recently disappeared. I went online to check and got the following message: “The station is temporarily disconnected. Its data are unavailable”
There is much construction ongoing along Great Strand Street to the best of my knowledge there will be a number of new hotels opening in the not too distant future.
At times there is some interesting street art on view.
Yesterday someone from the US asked me why do streets in Ireland have “Lower” and “Upper” in their names and how does one know which is which. My understanding is that Lower is always the section that is nearest a river or canal however there is one exception that I know of – Upper and Lower Mount Street are parallel to each other so neither is closer to the the canal but in this case Lower Mount Street is closer to the River Liffey which is some distance away.
