Artane, Dublin 5

This shrine is located on Lein Park in the Harmonstown/Artane area.  It's unusual in being dedicated to Pope John Paul II.

N69, Mungret, Co. Limerick

The statue is very similar, but not identical to the one at Patrickswell.

The photos really don't do justice to how this closes the vista on the road. We must put a camera on the bonnet of the car and drive by.

Church of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Fairview, Dublin

You couldn't have a church with that name and not have a shrine of some sort.  As to their grammar, we're saying nuttin.

Mary Immaculate College, South Circular Road, Limerick

From Mary I to marianireland, here's Thomas Aquinas.

The text on the plaque reads (in Irish, latin, and english)
Just as it is better to illuminate than
merely to shine, so it is better to deliver
to others contemplated truths than
merely to contemplate.

That explains the smiley face then.
