Another of Londonderry's old gates. The city seems to be encroaching on it.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day.

On our trip to Ireland/Northern Ireland, we walked on the wall. Thoroughly loved the Isle. Enjoyed Carrickfergus, too. Still chuck about the castle with the King on the "throne" (That was Carrickfergus, right?)

@beach: Glad you enjoyed your trip to the Emerald Isle!

The old meets the new ... maybe one day the new will completely overtake the old

The gate beautifully frames the street beyond. Beautiful color. A lovely scene! Happy St. Patrick's Day!
