Streetview Ireland

Strange and unusual sights from streetview Ireland (and around the world)

The shamed Anglo Irish Bank and its branches is and are no more.
The now iconic signage has long since been taken down from these branches but Google Streetview again delivers…for posterity etc.

Conolly’s Folly (Baois Uí Chongaile) Co.Kildare #MOI7

Interesting story behind this Obelisk which was built in 1740 to give the locals something to do besides starve and/or emigrate during the famine years of 1740/1741. 

Cork’s Suicide Bridge

Rooves Bridge, on the road from Coachford to Bandon in Cork, is the longest bridge over the river Lee. But, it’s famous locally for a different and much more tragic reason. 

The barriers were put in place in an effort to discourage or make it more difficult for people to jump off.

What’s the story with Mullingar & Shopping Trolleys?

All (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th) found in and around the environs of Mullingar with very little searching. 

This phenomena put us to thinking. Shopping Trolleys and Google Street View…hmmmm. And here’s the result, Street View Ireland’s first spin off: 

THE LONELY STREET VIEW SHOPPING TROLLEY (CART)

Feel free to submit any shopping trolleys you spot in Ireland or around the world on Google Street View.

Google Streetview Goes Underground…literally!

Breaking with tradition* here a little bit. First post on Streetview Ireland showing a location not in Ireland but we felt it was too awesome not to share. Google streetview Japan in their infinite awesomeness have added two underground locations in the form of natural caves and man made mines in Japan.
