Thomas Moore in Rotunda Gardens, Dublin - 22 August, 1823

from Memoirs, journal and correspondence of Thomas Moore, page 126:

Went to walk in the Rotunda Gardens in the evening, but being alone could not stand the staring I had to encounter; […] should like to have sauntered there a little longer, listening to the music, as the scene altogether brought back young days of courtship and carelessness to my mind.
