The Yellow Rose

The Yellow Rose A yellow rose in Fitzgerald’s Park in Cork. I made this photo a few weeks back and it had just rained, leaving nice little droplets of water on the delicate petals of the flower.

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.

Thomas in his buggy

Thomas in his buggy Thomas, a young boy in his buggy on Patrick’s Day this year. He’s well wrapped up against the cold. I have no idea who he is, so hopefully his name is Thomas, and that’s not some famous brand I’m not aware of.

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.

Absolutely crazy in Ireland

Absolutely crazy in Ireland I spotted this sticker on the pier at Currabinny, Co. Cork. I have no idea what “Absolutely, Crazy – Cowes’05″ refers to and a quick bit of research didn’t show up anything. Does this ring a bell with anyone?

Sssh! my dog was nowhere near your private property!

Sssh! my dog was nowhere near your private property! My shih tzu Oscar can’t read. “Private property” signs mean nothing to him but thankfully nobody was around when he wandered into this large garden!

One for the road?

One for the road? A bottle of Duvel beer left on a walkway near a construction site in Cork.

Daisies in the grass

Faces of the TechCrunch Party 2007

Faces of the TechCrunch Party 2007 TechCrunch held their second annual party on Friday night and I was there with a few of the guys from Automattic. It was my first time being at a gathering like this, but we had a good time and I got a couple of shots off. In the collage […]
