Quick stop in at Maynooth College, just outside of Dublin

The trip across from Galway to Dublin allowed me to catch up on some of my work and, because we had a bit of spare time before we arrived in Dublin, we stopped off at Maynooth College in the town of Maynooth, just outside Dublin.

Mum’s grandfather, my great-grandfather, John Joseph Walters (1871-1935) worked here before he left Ireland to live in Australia. He worked at Maynooth College, mending the garments of the priests who were studying in the seminary.

What a beautiful old grand place this is.
