People go to great lengths to protect their stock of booze. This guy is standing guard over the Guinness mortuary chapel in All Saints' Church in Raheny. As far as I can see, he is the only gargoyle on the outside of the church.
As well as the remains of Lord and Lady Ardilaun the chapel contains a special can of Guinness (below) commemorating that brewery's 250th anniversary at James's Gate in 2009.
The dragon above has been on guard for nearly a century and a quarter, but the piece of Sharia law below has just been introduced into the Supervalu off-licence in Raheny.
It would need to be a very very Good Friday!
