Up the 'Batter! A video stroll around Stoneybatter (Dublin 7)

A video of a hidden area of Dublin - Stoneybatter (aka "Rock Bun"). It contains quiet streets, intimate parks, the UN museum and other delights.
According to Lar, Stoneybatter comes from Bothair na gCloch meaning Road of the Stones. (It was one of the first paved roads leading from Tara to Glendalough and St. Patrick is said to have walked it.)
Many of the streets are named after Vikings or Norse culture, e.g. Olaf Road, Sigurd Road, Viking Road.
One particular street - Sitric Road - hosted a "block party" at the weekend. The "Sitric Picnic".
