Grafton Street:

Grafton Street (Irish: Sráid Grafton) is one of the two principal shopping streets in Dublin city centre, the other being Henry Street. It runs from Saint Stephen's Green in the south (at the highest point of the street) to College Green in the north (to the lowest point).


Zither, pronounced [ˈtsɪtɐ], is the name of both a class of stringed instruments, and of certain particular instruments within that class. The word zither is a German rendering of the Latin word cithara, from which the modern word guitar is also derived. Historically, it has been used to describe any instrument of the cittern family, or an instrument consisting of many strings stretched across a thin, flat body – similar to a psaltery.
