Clontarf Bridge

Clontarf Bridge in Cork is a bridge across the River Lee, opened in 1912 and still very much in use. Originally built to link two railways it’s now used for road traffic! This Cokipedia page has lots more info on the bridge and this page mentions that the bridge, “could be lifted to allow the schooners and coasters access to the quay.”

The Old Rocking Chair

Old? Probably not. A quite new rocking chair outside a shop in Killrush, Co Clare back in April 2009. Photographed while we were on holiday and we were lucky to have a beautiful day. Unfortunately not every day was good but we made the best of it!

A Cup among the the rocks

The smooth uniform texture of a cup contrasted with the rough and weathered stones of a wall on Cape Clear Island. Somewhere near where I took the previous shot I saw this cup at the side of the road and was struck by the oddness of it’s placement.
