A visit to the Wiltshire Collection to start this week and I can honestly say that the shade of Elinor Wiltshire is looking down on the scene! She has photographed the iconic St. Audeons Church in the centre of Dublin though her point of view has truncated the tower.

    It really does make it look as though the city ends there. It's very different today. goo.gl/maps/z9B3kNGDCB12

    From the Church of Ireland wiki - "...The tower houses six bells, three of which are Ireland's oldest bells, dating from 1423. The bells were rung for the Angelus and after the Reformation continued to be rung every morning and evening to call the people to and from their work. Due to the fragile state of the tower they were not rung between 1898 and 1983 ie at the time of this photo. After the tower was strengthened the bells were retuned in 1983. One of them, the tenor, was recast in memory of Alexander E. Donovan (1908-1982), who was closely connected with the church. They are now rung every week.... "
