      • Mussel and Scallop have just arrived in Dublin and they see a beautiful sign on a wall.
      • What does it mean? That is not English.
      • Let´s ask that red haired girl!
      • Excuse me, lady, is this English?
      • Oh,no,it isn´t. It is Gaelic. In Ireland we have got two languages: English and Gaelic.
      • Oh, the same as in Galicia! We have Spanish and Galego.
    • Could you translate it, please?
      • Sure! It says /Keid mila fo:lcha/ which means a hundred thousand welcomes.
      • How nice words to start our visit to Dublin!
    • Where are you from?
      • We are from Galicia. I am Mussel and this is my friend Scallop
      • Hello! My name is Molly and I am on my way to my Irish dance class, would you like to visit the city?
      • Yes, yes! Thank you, Molly!
      • This is O´Connell Bridge. It is a very wide bridge. Thousands of people cross it every day.
      • And the river? Is this the Shannon?
      • No, not the Shannon. This is the river Liffey.
      • Look,Molly! There is a statue. It is a man. He has got a hat and a walking stick.
      • Oh, yes, it is the statue of James Joice, a famous Irish Writer.
      • Look! This is the Custom house
      • Look, Scallop, it has got six high columns!
      • Yes, they are very big!
      • And this is the General Post Office
      • This is Four Courts
      • Look! Lots of columns again!
    • This is Ha´Penny Bridge
      • Look, Mussel, it is long and narrow. Why is it so narrow, Molly?
      • This bridge was designed for pedestrian use only. In the old times, people had to pay half a penny to cross it
      • Molly, please, let´s cross it!
      • Ha´Penny bridge leads us into Temple Bar. Here you can find artists, musicians, lively streets and lots of pubs
      • Pubs are places where people can drink beer, eat a meal and listen to traditional celtic music.
      • What´s a pub?
      • In a Pub you can drink our most famous beer: Guinness.
      • You can also have a meal. You should try the Dublin Bay Prawns. They serve them with lettuce, cream sauce and pepper.
      • Pubs are also places to enjoy music.
      • They are playing “The wild rover”,listen.
      • What is this building?
      • It´s Dublin Castle. They started building it in1204, but most of the building is from the 18th century.
      • And this is Trinity College, a very important university and a symbol of the city of Dublin.
      • This is the old Trinity College Library. They call it “The long room”
      • Wow! It´s very long!
      • Yes, and it has got hundreds of books
      • There is a special book here,look!
      The Book of Kells
      • The Book of Kells is more than one thousand years old. It has got very beautiful pictures and letters.
      • There is another important thing in this Long Room!
      The Brian Boru Harp
      • It is the oldest harp in Ireland, they say it belonged to Brian Boru, high king of Ireland.
      • And this is the harp which appears in the Irish coins!
      • Now, follow me again. I want to show you some beautiful doors in the streets.
      • They are all Georgian doors. Do you like them?
      • Here you can see the statue of Oscar Wilde, another famous Irish writer.
      • Look, Scallop, he is sitting on a big stone!
      • Follow me! I want to show you another statue!
      • It´s a woman! Is she a writer?
      • No, she was not a writer, she was a fish seller. She was very beautiful and she died very young.
      • Oh, what a sad story!
      • Yes, they composed a pub song in her honour. Listen!
      • Well! Bye, bye. I must attend my Irish dance class! They are waiting for me!
      Bye bye, Molly. Thank you very much for your help!
      • Mussel, Iam tired and thirsty
      • Yes, I am tired and thirsty, too. That seems a nice place to drink something
