It was a rainy weekend day when I took a few exterior and interior shots of the pavilion.

Headsets at the tables allowed visitors to hear actors reading works by Irish celebrities such as Oscar Wilde, James Joyce,  George Bernard Shaw, Jonathan Swift, and William Butler Yeats.

Famous Waterford glass was among the displays.

My father loved those maps of Ireland highlighting where families originated.  I do remember standing there with him.  And my parents sat in the cafe and enjoyed Irish coffee.

Part of my family came from Ireland so we made several trips to the pavilion. I'm told the Irish Coffee was just a coincidence.

The Irish Coffee was "a coincidence."  Hmmm, now I realize my father wandered in there looking for a shamrock, I'll bet, and accidentally stumbled into that dining area and bar.  Great post, Bill.  You made me laugh.  Thank you.
