NORTH STRAND NORTH PACIFIC

Friday, Jul 29th, 2005 in The IPWS Blog by Tom Lawlor | Comment

One of Dublin’s finest pubs is located on the North Strand near the Royal Canal. Cusacks is owned by Brian and Betty Healy. The bar displays one of the finest collections of marine memrobilia in the country. A great collection of ships models, brass fittings and an amazing chart of the Irish coastline showing every lighthouse with the lights blinking in accurate sequence. Modestly displayed on a pillar is Brians attempts at photojournalism. A series of four images taken by Brian in 1962 on Christmas Island in the North Pacific showing the blasts and mushroom clouds of the US nuclear tests. How Brian got these shots is a story which you will enjoy over a pint.
