If you’re getting tired of reading about and seeing pictures from my trip to Ireland, this is the last then I slide back into reality again. I thought I would add some pictures of various types of plumbing I encountered while on vacation. Since we spent a fair amount of time in pubs (which is what you do there), many of my photos originate from a men’s bathroom in a pub somewhere.

It appears they do not have sufficient water pressure in many areas, hence the flush tank located above the urinals.

Space is at a premium in many buildings so the plumbers get creative with fixture selections. This would not fly under normal codes here.

Seems like I keep coming back to this picture. I guess this is what makes it necessary to have plumbing in the first place.

Thanks for joining me while I relive my trip.  Back to real stuff next week!
