Thomond - The garage


The garage

The garage where the Thomonds were built was on Haddington Rd, near Baggot St Bridge over the Grand Canal.


The garage is long demolished.
The site was a car park.
It is now the site of a new office building.
The ground floor is part of the Milano restaurant in 1 Victoria Buildings next door.

Tomb - just a canal-bank seat for the passer-by."
