Rain falls on one of the tables in the grounds of The Anglers Rest, Co Cork. After the roasting sun of a week or so ago the country has been deluged with sudden and heavy showers, thunder and lightning and in some areas flooding.
A few weeks ago we couldn’t go out because it was too hot, now the weather has done an about-turn and it’s unpredictable!
Martin O’Brien who runs The Old Grainstore at St. Mullin’s, Co Carlow posed for a photo after we chatted with him outside his café. It was a glorious day and the place was busy with people eating lunch, swimming and walking about. It’s a beautiful location I want to return to again.
St Patrick’s Street, Cork during the Street Performance World Championships yesterday. Does anyone know who this performer is?
I can’t really comment on any of the performers unfortunately as I was only there for an hour with a bored six year old who had a fixation on buying an Angry Birds hat and balloon animals. There were huge crowds too which meant kids had to at the performance before it started to get a place in front.
I’m glad I caught this moment.
Yesterday evening in Crosshaven, Co Cork. It was a beautiful end of the day. Not quite as hot as other days which I was thankful for but many people out and a good atmosphere in the town.
Edit: here’s the original photo!

Today was Family Fun Day in Blarney oraganised by Gaelscoil Mhuscrai. It threatened to rain several times but besides a few drops it stayed dry and everyone had fun!
