Came across this flower poking up through the leaf litter
in a Liffey side park in west Dublin.
Don't think I've ever seen it before.
Anybody know what this is?
The green leaves are wild garlic.

There you go every day is an education, I try to learn something new every day just one thing but cannot say I will remember it, today learnt what Phytomyza ilicis is. There is something you could find easily if you know where to look, try looking at Ilex aquifolium.
