World Book Day Singer (1/4)

World Book Day Singer (1/4) Cork celebrated World Book Day a little late but it didn’t stop the organisers putting on a great show! This gentleman performed for the crowds outside the City Library and attempted to serenade many of the females who walked past. This is what the street entertainer in yesterday’s picture was […]

The Craft Fair is now on!

The Craft Fair is now on! A craft fair was recently held in the Unitarian Church on Prince’s Street. I have been dying to get into the building and see what it’s like on the inside for ages so we jumped at the chance. We like visiting these fairs too so it was doubly good. […]

Picadilly Lane

Picadilly Lane Cork has it’s own Picadilly, Picadilly Lane leads off North Main Street and is situated next to the butchers I featured previously.

Abandoned Train Station

Abandoned Train Station In Killeagh, East Cork, there’s an abandoned train station from I don’t know how long ago.

Buy a hot dog

Buy a hot dog I’d call them hot dogs simply because I’m ignorant of the German name used on the sign outside this stall. Whatever they’re called they were delicious! Pictured during the St. Patrick’s Festival Cork 2006.

Joe, the Devil and an Angel

Joe, the Devil and an Angel Joe, the Devil and an Angel Joe was a simple man. He is like most of us haunted by his own devils but also protected by an angel by his side. In this street drama Joe was continually tempted by the devil, but then he found a small bird […]

The French Soap Seller

The French Soap Seller One of the stalls at the St. Patrick’s Festival Market sold perfumed soaps and other crafts.

Mr Crow uses his head Mr Crow teaches juggling The look of joy Mr Crow’s balancing act “On the count of three you pull!” Mr Crow is crazy, there’s no question of that.

Grooming the Monkey

Grooming the Monkey When you’ve had a hard morning climbing branches and swinging from tree to tree, what better way to relax than have your mother run her fingers through your fur and pick out the ticks and insects. Pictured in Lincoln Park Zoo, Chicago.
