Dublin {Trinity College}

Trinity College
founded in 1592
The Charter came from Queen Elizabeth
granting land from the Monastery of All Hallows 
for use as a college

Those are the facts. And unfortunately we didn't stick around to get details; except that the famous book of Kells is on display in the library, which I hear is lovely but we didn't want to pay the entry fee.

Mostly I'm posting these photos by themselves because the sky was  so beautiful the day we visited.  The concourse was crowded with tourists and the most random and friendly photo bomber ever. We visited the college between the archaeology museum and the science museum.

Famous Trinity College Graduates:
Jonathan Swift
George Berkeley
Edmund Burke
Oscar Wilde

(at least the one's I really care about :)
