Vintage Bathing Spots in Dublin II

there’s a long rusty ladder

that can be quite intimidating the first time you use it

at this swimming spot on the Great South Wall

Poolbeg – 

people (men) first officially bathed here in 1898

Great South Wall, Dublin

when it was 

“the Poolbeg Bathers’ Association” 

there are also colourful seaside meadows full of whatever this is (ragwort? catmint?)
