There has been a bit of bother at the Russian Embassy here.
The other day, a bloke reversed his truck into the gates of the embassy and made a bit of a hames of them. Or, as Waterford Whispers headlined – “Irish Truck Rear-Ended By Russian Embassy Gates“.
Anyhows, the embassy is situated on Orwell Road. This is a name fairly well known for Dubliners as one of those places where if you ask for the price of a house then you can’t afford it. It is up there close to appearing on a Monopoly board behind Shrewsbury and Aylesbury Roads.
I see this morning that the local council have voted to change the name of the road. They want to rename it “Independent Ukraine Road“!
Whatever about the Russian Embassy, I very much doubt the other residents will go with that one even in the fervour of Ukrainian support that has gripped the country.
It’s worth a chuckle though.
