Street View for Ireland & Brazil Launched

Google today added Street View imagery to the Republic of Ireland, Brazil and a tiny bit of Antartica. The coverage in Ireland seems to be pretty comprehensive. In Brazil the imagery seems to be concentrated in Rio de Janerio, Sao Paulo and Belo Horizonte.

Here are some of the sights you can view in the new imagery:

Carnival, Sao Paulo

The GPO, Dublin

Christchurch Cathedral, Dublin

St Finbarre's Cathedral, Cork

Kylemore Abbey

Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Niterói

São Paulo Cathedral



These websites have collections of interesting sights found on Street View. You can bet that they will all be busy adding Irish and Brazilian finds to their collections today:

Street View Funny
Google Sightseeing
Google Earth Hacks

One Developer has also been very quick to produce three websites dedicated to collecting interesting Street Views from Brazil: (São Paulo) (Rio de Janeiro) Belo Horizonte

Hey dude its wrong! (the rest of Brazil)

This link is for Belo Horizonte, the 3rd biggest city in Brazil. Not "the rest of Brazil".
