Carmelite Church, Aungier Street, Dublin 8

This one is cheating really, because it's not a shrine or a grotto, it's a statue, and if we start with the statues we'll never get finished. This is what's known as mission creep in project management speak. But I think it's gorgeous.

The conch shell! The gilding!

If you half close your eyes, it looks like baby Jesus is drinking a bottle.


  1. I've passed this thousands of times and never noticed the statue above the door, or took time to notice it. Still not going in the thesis though.

  2. You could easily miss it but it's one of the nicest out there.
