Sunday I headed off to Denny’s Big Day Out in Dublin city centre as part of the St. Patrick’s Festival. It was a glorious sunny day and as I headed down Merrion Street, many others were heading in the same direction to Merrion Square.
Walking alongside a man and his three or four young children I couldn’t help but overhear their conversation. Walking past Leinster House, the eldest child, a boy of about 7 asked his dad what was that?
“That’s the Taoiseach’s office, that’s where he works.”
Some oohs and aahs of amazement from the kids.
Dad: “Who can tell me who the Taoiseach is? Come on, come on.” He was snapping fingers while saying this, may have been a school teacher in disguise 😀
Oldest lad said something I didn’t quite hear.
Disappointed dad: “No, no its not Barack Obama.”
