Wynnefield Road is kind of a surprise. It’s just off the junction between Rathmines Road and Castlewood Avenue, near the post office, Tesco and Swan Centre, but as it’s at a slight angle to Rathmines Road, it can look like little more than the side of Slattery’s pub and then nothing. I’m a big fan of Slattery’s from any side, but the street also offers a small row of shops including good Lebanese and Palestinian food, as well as the decorated chimney of the former Trustee Savings Bank on the corner.

Above the roofline of the shops, there are a series of gabled dormer windows with timber fronts. In various states of disrepair and weathering, they run through a spectrum of greens, from a yellowy sap green to nearly blue.
