THIS EXAMPLE OF STREET ART BY ALBENTY HAS SURVIVED FOR ALMOST FOUR YEARS – MONTPELIER HILL DUBLIN
Unfortunately I have no information relating to the street artist Albenty.
The name this street caught me by surprise when I first visited it back in 2016 because Mount Pelier Hill is in fact a 383-metre (1,257-foot) hill in County Dublin, Ireland.It is commonly referred to as the Hell Fire Club, the popular name given to the ruined building at the summit. This building – a hunting lodge built in around 1725 by William Conolly – was originally called Mount Pelier and since its construction the hill has also gone by the same name. The building and hill were respectively known locally as ‘The Brass Castle’ and ‘Bevan’s Hill’ , but the original Irish name of the hill is no longer known although the historian and archaeologist Patrick Healy has suggested that the hill is the place known as Suide Uí Ceallaig or Suidi Celi in the Crede Mihi, the twelfth century diocesan register book of the Archbishops of Dublin.
