“Known as AP or more formally as APD.
I was born in Dun Laoghaire three score years ago.
My parents and grandparents were also born in the old borough of Dun Laoghaire(then known as KINGSTOWN) so I am not only from Dun Laoghaire I am of Dun Laoghaire.
I have travelled extensively but still find the promenade and environs of Dun Laoghaire to be among the most attractive maritime vistas on planet earth.
Come Walk Dun Laoghaire with me.”

When the sun graces us with it’s presence we will read the time on a mathematically accurate sundial, we will see monuments to tragic heroes and victims of war and we will laugh at the girth of Georgie Pordgie!
