The road beyond Fountainstown

Have you ever gone beyond the beach at Fountainstown in Co. Cork? I’ve been visiting that beach all my life but I had never walked up the road until a week ago. I’m glad I did because it’s very nice up there, and coupled with a setting sun I went a little mad with the camera! Expect a few more shots from here over the week.

I like these: New terminal at Cork Airport and great child portraits.

    It’s amazing the places I will explore now that I have a camera in hand that I wouldn’t have gone before. Can’t wait to see what you saw that evening.

    Thanks for commenting! I looked it up, and according to the Wikipedia page, the literal translation means “arse/ass of a bag”! I’ll never look at another street sign seriously again! :)

    It is 26 years since I lived in Fountainstown. I enjoyed looking at the photos. It brought back happy memories. I would like to visit again one day.
