Gorbys Nightclub

Gorbys Nightclub This alley should be familiar to almost everyone in Cork. The entrance to Gorbys nightclub is halfway down there. Many a Saturday night was spent queuing up to get in!

The lights at Finn’s Corner

The lights at Finn’s Corner A long exposure at f/22 creates the beautiful star like pinpoints of light and enough time to capture the light trail from passing cars. No tripod, so I used street furniture to balance the camera!

Lost in thought

Lost in thought Two teenage girls on Patrick’s Street, Cork. One is lost in thought, while the other chats away. Do you recognise the Special K poster in the background?

The girl in Abrakebabra

The girl in Abrakebabra A young girl waits for her food in Abrakebabra, Patrick St. in Cork. Her hard expression is softened by the little hearts on her jumper, but somehow I think she can stand up for herself .. Good news! My car passed the NCT this morning!

Irish Adult Store

Irish Adult Store There are I think 3 adult stores in Cork. Two are down by Parnell Place, or at least they were, and the other is pictured above! One of the adult stores in Cork is down a small, narrow little road called Grafton Street. The alley is so small that it doesn’t even […]

Debenhams’ confused identity

Debenhams’ confused identity Debenhams bought Irish department store chain, "Roches Stores", back in 2006, and rebranded their Cork store on Patrick Street shortly afterwards.

For sale at Sherry FitzGerald

For sale at Sherry FitzGerald These are the swanky new offices of estate agent Sherry FitzGerald in Cork. I find it intriguing that the owners decided to bring in other agents to sell the other floor space in the building. There are signs for Savills/Hamilton Osborn King and Lisney on the top floor directly above […]

Cu Na Mara

Cu Na Mara A bright red trawler pictured in Dingle Harbour last September. The name of the vessel, “Cu Na Mara”, literally means "Hound of the Seas"! Bigeoino says I made it to the front of “Cork Places”. Does anyone know what that is? Is it a magazine? I’m going to ask in Easons later […]
