General Post Office (GPO) in Dublin

Irish Post Office. Symbol of Irish Freedom in Dublin. There is a museum.

GPO (General Post Office) Dublin, Ireland

GPO (General Post Office) Dublin, Ireland: Built in 1814 and sited in the centre of Dublin's main thoroughfare - O'Connell Street, the General Post Office was designed by Francis Johnston. Originally the building was faced by Nelson's Column which was blown up in the 1960s. This has now been replaced by the Dublin Spire.

The General Post Office, Dublin. I'm absolutely dying to see the bullet scars on the building and the Cu Chulainn commemorative statue.

The General Post Office on O'Connell Street in Dublin, Ireland. I know it's silly to look at a post office, and you don't have to go in... but the GPO is a cool building and a big landmark. @Carly Keiser #placescarlyneedstosee
