Cat Got Your Mural?

A bit of “auld Dublin” … sort of … this mural could be found at the start of the “Noughties”, when the Celtic Tiger was still roaring, at the quays in Dublin. It is long gone. Glad I managed to take a snapshot at the time. Mainly because it was a. a cat picture and b. a nice wordplay. Because it advertised a pub. Called “The Cat Dragged Inn”.

The pub was at the corner of Ellis Street. It might already have been closed when the image was taken. And the “taggers” were just starting to make their mark. Today, the wall has been repainted, whitewashed even. And Google Streetview shows the entirely uninspiring locality “For Sale”. Don’t know whether it still is.

But the cat is gone …
