Bonfire Night

Bonfire night.. adding fuel to the fire
Fire Brigade arrive

It was Bonfire Night in Cork yesterday. It’s celebrated on St. John’s Eve and there have been bonfires lit in Cork for as long as I remember. Not all parts of the country celebrate the night, and I heard on the radio 2 days ago that there may be a by-law passed in Cork banning the lighting of bonfires that night because of the danger to people, property and the fire services.
Unfortunately each year the fire services are attacked with rocks and other weapons when they go to certain areas of the city.

Purple Flowers

Purple flowers that crept into my garden from next door. I’m not complaining because they’re very pretty!

06-06-06

Today is the 6th day of the 6th month of the 6th year or 06-06-06.
People worry about the date’s similarity to 666, “the number of the beast”. Did you do or not do anything today because of the date?
Here’s some more trivia about this once in a century day.

Mr. Ed

Well, maybe he doesn’t talk, but this horse sure eats a lot!

Blarney Rabbit

Another shot of the lovely little rabbit before I cut the grass. The grass has grown back with a vengance already so it will need cutting again!
We’re Back! Lanzarote was amazing and I have several hundred photos and a few are probably good enough to post!

A little bunny in the garden

One of the trio of rabbits that live in and around our garden in Blarney.

I may have time to post wedding photos before we go on honeymoon but it’s unlikely. You’ll have to wait! I’m going to ask a few people for permission to post photos of them first so don’t worry about your face appearing on the Internet!
Thank you Donal, Conor, Matt, Charlene, Mike, Celine, John and everyone else who had a camera for taking photos. I look forward to seeing those that I haven’t seen yet!

Water falls in Blarney

A river runs near my home in Blarney and a small stream feeds it as it meanders through a nice wooded area on my doorstep.

I froze the water in this image as it fell into the river while we were out for a walk there a few weeks back. It could be better but it’s my first go at this in a long while. Freezing water in motion in a kitchen sink is a lot easier than when you’re outside and there are so many unknown elements.

One last note, my linux.ie email is down right now. If you’re trying to get in touch, use donncha @ inphotos.org instead!

Sunlit leaf

The afternoon sun beats down out of a blue sky on a cold March day.

Blarney Horses

Three horses appeared in a field close to Blarney village about a week ago. At first, a mare, her foal and another horse were there, but the mare is gone now and three young looking animals are in residence. I took this photo one morning a few days ago.
One of the horses was exceptionally friendly, looking for attention and pushing the others out of the way to sniff my hand and be rubbed!
They’re lovely animals and hopefully they’ll be close to the fence next time I walk past.
