Mr Monkey trotted up O'Connell Street, to see the General Post Office, one of the main centres of fighting during the Easter Rising. After it was destroyed during the fighting, it was repaired completely, except that bullet scars were left on the pillars at the front. Unfortunately, they were putting tramlines into O'Connell Street, which rather spoiled the outisde view.
There's a page - with pictures taken when no-one was digging up O'Connell Street - at the Irish Architecture Online website.
