Dublin's Custom House, one of the city's fine Georgian buildings sits above the River Liffey as it flows through the capital of Ireland seen here with arches lit up in the colours of the flag of Ukraine.

The Custom House is very recognisable to Dubliners, it was designed by one of the finest Georgian architects who designed many of Dublin's most iconic building - James Gandon; it opened in 1791 to serve as the building in which to collect and pay taxes for good shipped through Dublin, most goods travelling via the quays - the riverside.

Some refer to it as the Customs House, this could well be an old local name for it but the official name is Custom House, the street signs call it Custom House and, rather tellingly, it is located on Custom House Quay.

Seen above on 25th February 2022, with the arches coloured blue and yellow for the Ukrainian flag.
