Daniel Fig Foz's 2011 trip to the North of the island of Ireland

This summer I went to the North of Ireland for a week, this is my first photo thread in a couple of years I'd say.

I decided to put the urban photos that I took in here.

PART ONE: ARMAGH

The first city that I visited in the trip was the City of Armagh, where the headquarters of both the Church of Ireland and the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland, and there are two St Patricks Cathedrals there.

I wanted to go there to see the plaque for Brian Boru on the outside of the Protestant Cathedral

We parked in the largest church car park that I've ever seen, oh well, I have given enough to the catholic church in mass to cover the parking I should think

You can see the Protestant Cathedral at the top of that hill

Sorry about the angle, I was being discreet, as some old people were starering at me

Right in the city centre on Scotch Street

Taken from a curve on Scotch Street (Northern Bank behind the photo), Thomas street goes down the right and another bit of Scotch Street going town

You can see a bit of the CofI Cathedral. This is a street that goes from Scotch Street to the Protestant Cathedral

I've been looking forward to this thread! I was in Armagh not to long ago as well. The Georgian architecture and the cathedrals are great! The streets are with modern paving too. I was pretty impressed. I get what you're saying about taking pics. Usually if you dare to take a camera out to photograph things outside of the bigger cities on this island you can be stared at by everyone near by!! It's annoying, but I don't even care any more.

Nice stuff, can't wait for more

I know this will sound like a stupid thing to say but those photos look so Irish! It's exactly what I imagine Ireland to look like.

Great pics of a part of the world I havent seen. Thanks.

Indeed you would expect that to be the case. Belfast and Dublin look more British than London though
