Amtes, or I think that’s what it says

Church Graffiti

Back in the 1840’s a new mental asylum was opened in Cork, Ireland, closed only in 1988. On a wet Sunday I took a stroll around but found the old hospital itself is now well boarded up and I could not get access. The Church however was easily accessible so I dropped in through a missing window pane to shelter from the worst of the weather.

Graffiti done well can be very nice and it certainly added something to this otherwise decrepit building. Much better than the average toe rag who sprays “johnny woz ‘ere” around the back of the school.

Some would say this is vandalism, not me. i wonder what this would have done for the victims patients of the old hospital. It’s an bold expression in a place that spent it’s history keeping the masses down.
