Engarde! Construction continues in Cork

Engarde! Construction continues in Cork Will the construction work in Cork ever end? They just finished digging up the end of Washington Street and Grande Parade when they dig up that busy corner again. Not quite as bad as the ESB or Bord Gais running a trench through brand new tarmac and leaving a broken […]

Cork University Maternity Hospital opened March 31st

Cork University Maternity Hospital opened March 31st This was taken a few days after Adam was born and while an election campaign was in full swing. Outside Cork University Hospital a proud poster announced that Cork University Maternity Hospital opened on March 31st. I can’t remember if it did, or was it a week later, […]

YIELD! Right of way

YIELD! Right of way A slightly damaged sign that should read, "Yield Right of Way" in Wilton in front of the CUMH. Looks like someone took a bite out of it. Are there large animals in Wilton?

Sunlight in the city

Sunlight in the city The sun hides behind the buildings and street furniture of Patrick’s Street in Cork.

Beware the giant duck!

Beware the giant duck! If you come down to Blarney today you should watch out for the giant ducks, and if you sit on a bench look behind you, there’s a good chance a tree is reading over your shoulder. Don’t get me started on the dastardly Parking signs! Yes, walking around Blarney can be […]

The Elysian will be so wonderful

The Elysian will be so wonderful If you’ve driven around Cork over the past year you can’t fail to miss the huge 17 storey tower going up in the south of the City. It’s called the Elysian and when it’s finished it will I think be the tallest building in the Republic of Ireland. Now, […]

The German Deep Purple

The German Deep Purple This group of lads wandered into the old switching station on Caroline Street during the filming of Stanley Super 800′s video so I took their photo. Apparently they are a German Deep Purple cover band but it was hard to figure out what their name was because they hardly spoke a […]

Stanley Super 800 Fans

Stanley Super 800 Fans Some of the crowd who gathered for the filming of the video accompanying "Gate Crashing", Stanley Super 800′s latest single. You wouldn’t believe how mad this lot were! You can see the video on my my blog.

Cut the chocolate birthday cake

Happy birthday Alex! Yum! Yum! Alex cuts the delicious chocolate birthday cake in Herbivore, San Francisco! That crazy Matt Mullenweg fella can’t resist helping him with the cake. Come to think of it, did anyone not eat the cake? It was so nice!

Why are you photographing that?

Why are you photographing that? It’s a bike on the ground, why are you photographing it? That’s what a group of girls asked me as I crouched down next to this bike. I got the shot though!

Finbarr House, Cork

Finbarr House, Cork Finbarr House is situated right next to University College Cork (UCC) on the Western Road. What’s strange is that it is a rundown building in the perfect location for renting to students: right in front of the University. Who knew there was an Irish property owner who didn’t want to make a […]

The dog and his bone

The dog and his bone Oscar, our pet Shih Tzu, pictured with a bone shaped biscuit treat. Actually he doesn’t like them much. He prefers Markies, but they’re bought now so he’ll finish them!

A rainy day on the street

A rainy day on the street It’s raining in Cork, possibly. The weather has been all upside down this summer. By the time you see this on my photoblog, I’ll be on my way to San Francisco. Check my Flickr stream for tomorrow’s pic I couldn’t run my future posting script because Flickr changed their […]
