Life-sized feature in someone’s garden in a place overlooking Coliemore Harbour in Dalkey, south county Dublin

Some random photos, just to conclude my ‘Summer in Dublin’ series, before I clear the camera memory (I’m back home now). I am not even sure I can remember where all of the images are from, but will do my best to guess; however, if anyone at any time can improve on my captions, supplying or correcting street names or whatever, it would be appreciated.
