Fat Boy Harley

Fat Boy Harley The 15th annual H.O.G. Rally took place this weekend in Killarney, Co. Kerry. 10,000 Harley Davidson riders were expected. For the last few days I’ve seen Harleys around Cork sporting flags from all over Europe. Here are two of them on their way back, pictured in Blarney! Jacinta and I were going […]

Bonfire Night

Bonfire Night 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 […]

Purple Flowers

06-06-06

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

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

Blarney Rabbit

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

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 […]

Water falls in Blarney

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 […]

Sunlit leaf

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

Blarney Horses

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 […]

Little Bunny

Little Bunny Each Spring for the past two years wild rabbits visit our garden at home. They’re really cute, and thankfully I don’t have any flowers or veg to tempt them!

Feed The Birds!

Feed The Birds! This was taken yesterday in my back garden. We had some beautiful light after a very dull start to the day and I took advantage of it. I used the Canon 75-300 IS lens but the bird feeder is about 3m away from my backdoor so I can’t get as close as […]

His and Hers

His and Hers Two ducks in the bird sanctuary outside Blarney. I took this back in May 2005 on the same day as this one. This one’s for Matt!

Maxol Petrol Station, Blarney

Maxol Petrol Station, Blarney This is the Maxol Petrol Station in Blarney. This is a long exposure shot and I just managed to get the Cork-Blarney bus in the frame!

The Signs in Blarney

The Signs in Blarney The signs in Blarney always point towards a B&B! This bunch of signs do anyway. Right at the end of Station Road there’s a pole with signs to about a dozen B&Bs! If you ever need somewhere to stay in Blarney you shouldn’t have trouble finding accomodation! Link of the Day […]
