    Well, Renair, next time you post pics, make sure you put spaces between them, will you, so they don't run all together. Here there are only three all in all, so it is still ok, but you can post more, then, however, you should not only put enough spaces between your links, but also number them.

    Of these, I like the first best - maybe because the O'Connell-column (am I right here???) can be seen as reflected in that one ambulance man's helmet? There is a whole scene of its own in there, and along with the emotion that the photo evokes through its foremost rescue/first aid scene, it is a nice second layer.

    The riot was bascially because members of the Loyalist community from Northern Ireland wanted to march through Dublin City centre which Irish people said it was them rubbing our noses in it. Many people advised not to march and unfortunately yobs and thugs turned it into a full scale riot!

    The GARDA (Irish police force - Irish for "Guardians of the Peace) did not object to us being there (photographers) as they had their hands full and to be honest were completely out numbered! I will add shots later to my site.
