This was seen on display whilst visiting the Dubliner museum next to Dublin cathedral.
This is the fascinating story of Lambert Simnel who was crowned king over there in Dublin and then sailed over to invade England landing at Piel Island, which I can actually see out of my window at this very minute. History is great eh!
Thus the tradition of having a King of Piel was born
Strangely enough our taxi driver friend over in Dublin had posted photos of the very same subjects that I had photographed on his excellent blog. They include some of the same sand sculptures in the courtyard of Dublin Castle and good old Molly Malone.
He must have been one of the many thousands of taxi drivers who passed me by on the busy streets of Dublin.
