CAPEL STREET AFTER THE DUBLIN PRIDE 2022 PARADE AND BEFORE THE REAL PARTY BEGINS
According to local media Dublin came a standstill this afternoon as thousands lined the city streets to celebrate Dublin Pride. Based on my experience I can agree that it really did come to a standstill as I had great difficult travelling from Bolton Street to Roebuck and back again. The buses were diverted away from the city centre and the trams did not operate between Dominick Street and St Stephen’s Green and as a result it took me more than two house to get to Roebuck – walk, tram, bus.
As mentioned in my posts yesterday the manager at Eatokyo on Capel Street had promised to keep a table for me but when I arrived at four in the afternoon I could not even make it to the door of the restaurant because of the crowd gathered outside the famous Pantibar.
