"or the strawberry beds" (U18.948)

From a Dublin guidebook (1895): "The strawberry beds extend for about 2 miles along the northern bank of the Liffey, from which river they are separated by a road leading to Lucan. The banks upon which the fruit is cultivated, rise almost perpendicularly to the right. The neatly thatched cottages, with their pretty gardens, and roses or woodbine twining round their doorways, are kept by persons who live chiefly by the sale of strawberries and cream during the months of June and July."
