St. Mary’s Secondary School, Ballsbridge, Dublin, Ireland

This building had been a two-storey convent school for girls, erected in 1901. The number of attendees dwindled and it closed in 2007.

Derelict Killiney Beach Tea Rooms, Dublin (Ireland)

This small building situated on the beautiful Killiney Beach is an eyesore. Covered in graffiti and home to endless piles of empty beer cans, this long abandoned site is a popular attraction for ‘sessions’ (a gathering of people where copious amounts of alcohol and other substances are consumed).
