station in Dublin
. Dublin is divided north-south
by the river Liffey
. The inhabitants of either
side are wary of venturing onto alien soil (the other side
). Tara Street
station is the last station before you
venture over to the north side
or the first station on your return to the south side
The platforms are half covered so in bad weather it is not a
great station to wait for a train, the tracks ben away in both directions and it used to be near impossible to determine when a train was coming. Last year electronic signs were installed on the platforms which tell you the arrival time of the next train (yay!). Next to these are television which tell you about films that are currently showing in the city and try to sell you stuff ?.
Tara street is handy for getting to Mulligans which is a really good pub in Dublin. There is also a pub under the
arches of the the train station if you can't wait after you get off the train.
I had a pint there one day with a german friend call silke, god that was years ago, she took a picture of me
swigging me pint and gave it to me later. She was nice, had sharp teeth, but I never got to experience them in quite the
way I might have liked.
