Rain on the River

Rain on the River

Rain falls on a river in a town in County Clare while we were stuck in a traffic jam. I used to know what town this was taken in but now it’s a mystery. It did have a very distinctive walled off area right in the middle of the river though. Anyone recognise it?

Killeagh Catholic Church

Killeagh Catholic Church

The town of Killeagh in County Cork has a beautiful Catholic Church at one of main street. A neat garden surrounds the building and it’s an eye catching sight for anyone passing through the town. According to a stone embedded in the church wall, it was completed in 1792.

While researching this post I stumbled upon the community site above and then wondered if a similar site existed for Blarney, but no, sadly the main sites you’ll find associated with Blarney belong to local businesses and are commercial affairs. (And for my next project…)

Woodford Bourne & Co

Woodford Bourne and Co

The top of Patrick’s Street in Cork is dominated by Mc Donalds, taking over from Mandy’s in the Woodford Bourne & Co building.

Check out this old advert from 1910. You can still recognise the building! Much more information about that structure can be found here. I vaguely remember Mandy’s but don’t remember it before that.
