A walk along Synge Street in Dublin.

Located just off the South Circular Road, beside Saint Kevin's Church and Portobello - Synge Street is a quiet and leafy street inside Dublin's canals.

In recent years it has featured in the Irish film Sing Street, a fine film set in 1980s Dublin that features the story of Conor Lawlor, his troubled life at a new school and his new found affection for Raphina whom he aims to befriend by starting a band.

Just to the right of the opening sequence is No. 40 Synge Street, where the character Raphina lives.

The film was directed by John Carney who also directed the Oscar winning film Once, Sing Street stars Aidan Gillen, Jack Reynor and Maria Doyle Kennedy as well as a host of new talent including Ferdia Walsh-Peelo who plays Conor.

Enjoy the short walk through the autumnal street.
