Caution! Unprotected High Cliffs

Caution! Unprotected High Cliffs

A sign at the base of the short hill below the white pillar near Bantry in Co Cork warns of high cliffs. Unfortunately Adam was asleep in the car and I couldn’t venture any further so I’ll have to return some day to take photos of that pillar.

Customer Parking Only

Customer Parking Only

The Organic Shop in Douglas Cork obviously has problems with non-customers parking in front of the shop. Why else would they put a wheel clamp on prominent display next to their warning sign? Lucky for us we were buying something ..

Glengariff Cemetery

Glengariff Cemetary

It’s Halloween again and ghosts and zombies are about. Would you spend a night in a cemetery, tonight? What sorts of noises do you hear if you live next to one? oooer!

I’m going out tonight for dinner with a friend, I wonder if they’ll be serving Halloween Brack?

Steep Cape Clear Hills

Steep Cape Clear Hills

Struggling up the what-feels-like-vertical hill from the North Harbour in Cape Clear is a nightmare. At least Adam was asleep. He was the lucky one.

Shame on Fianna Fail

Shame on Fianna Fail

“Shame on Fianna Fail!” declares a sign propped up against the wall of the Crawford Art Gallery in Emmett Place, Cork last weekend. It was left there by someone attending a protest demonstration organised by Alliance for a Better Health Service. I was handed a Socialist Party leaflet, Kathy Sinnott was there and a small crowd cheered and listened to the speakers in the light drizzle that day. I guess it’s no coincidence that Fianna Fail is the second result in a search for fail.

While working on the photo I did notice something unusual about the sign. The “on Fianna Fail” part is separate from the “Shame” section. I wonder if they have the names of all the political parties, politicians, celebrities, etc stored away in a cupboard somewhere ready to be pasted to the sign.. I jest of course. They probably only have “Fianna Fail” and “The Green Party”.

PS. Like the new “Tumblelog” type theme? It’s called Pockett. Beware if you’re unzipping it, it doesn’t create a directory!
