The boys visit the 'Dead Zoo' ....

On a wet Sunday afternoon the boys went to visit the 'Dead Zoo' - the National Museum of Natural History here in Dublin ....

It's one of their favourite places to visit on a wet day!

Murray finds the whole museum totally fascinating .......


"Look whose behind you" ....

Murray is still on a mission to work with the giraffes in Dublin Zoo when he finishes school so he was delighted on a wet Sunday to get to see lots of animals in the 'Dead Zoo'.  He walked around 'talking' to the animals and telling them he would be working in the 'real Zoo' in just a few short years!  You've got to love Murray's optimism ...

  1. Looks like a fantastic day! And we think optimism is wonderful!

  2. We see that Clive's tail is down. We hope this doesn't mean that you were scared, Clive!
    What a fun way to spend a wet Sunday afternoon!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  3. Perhaps Murray might be real good working with animals? He seems to understand them and loves them and they seem to understand that. Love the photographs.

  4. It looks like you are enjoying it to Clive. What a cool place

  5. You two are very brave. Some of the animals in the dead zoo look pretty scary to us!

    Your friends,
    Niamh & Ambrose

  6. What a brilliant place to visit! And we just love the name "The Dead Zoo"!


  7. Bet Clive wanted to chew on a few of the aul bones?
    I see the new Giraffe looks good. The previous one was less realistic than the Hamleys toy Giraffe!
