Interestingly we visit Kerry the day after their record win over Derry in the Minor Football Championship. Well done to all concerned. There is already hype over the footballing future of one David Clifford from the parish of Fossa - is he the Gooch squared? Meanwhile, I am loving these O'Dea shots, we may go for 3-in-a-row tomorrow!..Rory Sherlock ( /photos/139877639@N08/ ) and derangedlemur ( /photos/8468254@N02/ ) were very quick with coordinates (to help us map this image) and Niall McAuley ( /photos/gnmcauley/ ) not far behind (with an explanation on how the StreetView ( https://www.google.ie/maps/@52.5735623,-9.3764047,3a,45.6y,1.81h,92.35t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sJJribC96atVVoSYJYMhFLA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 ) presents such an improved looking building in the 4 decades since).

For the next 30 years the building [..] deteriorated and by the mid 1980s had become derelict. [..] in 1987 the Bridewell Project Group was formed [and] In 1993 the Bridewell opened as a Visitor Centre...(Phew!)...Photographer: James P. O'Dea..Collection:James P.
