Ah, the alley of my childhood. I was one of the Goths/Emos/Skates that hung around central bank back in the 2000's. I would walk up and from here to get back to O'Connell Street to get the bus home. There used to be a clothes shop on the left side, I don't know if it's still there or not but it's where I bought my dress for a "Goth party." On the other side, where the tattoo place is now, the upstairs used to be a skater shop and I would buy all my skateboards there along with merch. The shop with graffiti on it, is where I sat for hours talking to my ex. We talked about the pros and cons of staying together or not. Thank you for uploading this picture. I haven't been home in 9 years and this brings back so many memories.
