The Air Corps took these photographs of Dublin by air and they're stunning

It’s not bad looking, all the same.

TO PARAPHRASE SAMUEL Johnson, when you’re tired of Dublin, you’re tired of life.

The city has its bad and good parts – usually ones that have actually escaped from the decades of badly-thought-out planning – but from the air, it looks beautiful.

These photographs were taken by the people with some of the best views of the city: the Irish Air Corps, who took the photographs on the days when their operations took them over the capital.

Good work, folks.
