Waiting for God?
Ireland remains a very religious society, and these nuns waiting outside Greene's bookshop are a common sight.
Greene's bookshop is a combination post office and bookstore, selling both new and, more importantly, second-hand books. Greene's is a landmark near the corner of Clare Street and Merrion Street.
Only yards away is the spot outside Trinity College where James Joyce first spotted, and then followed home, the young Nora Barnacle.
Across the busy junction at the corner of Merrion Square is the home of Oscar Wilde, now occupied by the American College, Dublin.
Near here, on 17th May 1974, a loyalist bomb exploded, as part of the worst single day of killings of the 30-year 'Troubles,' now hopefully at an end.
