Should state they are standing over Shipquay Gate in the background is Shipquat Street which runs up to the Diamond. Shipquay gate is opposite the City's Guildehall building which would have been behind the photographer.

Welcome to the site @RL64RL , hope you will find time to introduce yourself and be an active part of the site. Again, welcome mate(Y)
 
Would you be able tell us a bit more about your time serving in Ireland?
Here is a taster I posted some years ago, the thread does go off topic in places but I wasn't too fussed about that. You will see that some other Squaddies post about their tour too and some of our american brothers (Vietnam Vets) make some comparisons to NI and Vietnam
