This photo from‘s favourite photographer Donal Moloney (see why here) has seen huge shares and likes on social media this morning.

You have to applaud the effort. He writes:

I dragged my bedroom mirror down to the Poolbeg area yesterday looking for an interesting image.

Replying to one commenter on his Facebook page, Donal writes that he carried the mirror all the way to the end of the South Bull Wall to the lighthouse there but only found this perfect picture opportunity as he walked back. “My right arm is now 2 inches longer than my left one,” he joked.

It’s certainly an interesting twist on a Dublin landmark, and Donal’s promised to show us some other mirror images he has been snapping around the country later today.
