At least it didn't affect the beer production so all Guiness lovers can still enjoy their brews for New Year!
When I lived in Dublin, I lived just down the street from the Guinness Brewery. That is also where I stay, when I visit Dublin these days. My street was likely very smokey a few days ago.
It must have been a pretty big fire. I saw a comment on a web forum from a pilot flying into Dublin on the date of the fire. He said, he wondered what all the smoke he saw from the plane was from.
I've never been to Ireland but it is a placxe I'd like to see. You have certainly moved around a bit, Mel. Re the fire, too many places seem to be going up in smoke these days. We are suffering more bushfires in Australia at the moment.
Maybe there were always a lot of fires, but the media are being extra energetic with reporting every single one these days. 😊
Yes that is true. Some have more impact on us personally, though, especially when they are places we know or love. I was very upset in 2002 when Windsor Castle was burned extensively and earlier when the Royal Pavilion in Brighton, England had a bad fire in my favourite part, the Music Room.
I dont know yet how much damage has been done to the Guinness Brewery. Maybe I will see it next time I am in Dublin if it is visible from the outside. I dont go inside the gates often.
