Dancing in the street All by himself, but he was enjoying the band that were playing a few feet away!

Ruby on the beach

Ruby on the beach Ruby, a Springer Spaniel we met last year in Bunnyconnellan, is still down in Myrtleville! Her owner must be living down there somewhere. We threw a stick for her a few times and then walked over to Fennell’s Bay and she followed us with her tail wagging! It was a pleasure […]

Green Seaweed

Green Seaweed Green seaweed grows on stumps of wood on the beach at Youghal. I can only guess that these stumps are a protection against the powerful force of the tides. Aren’t they? Check out the Youghal category for another shot of this beach!

Heron on the river and trolley

A Crowd Pleaser

A Crowd Pleaser More mono cycle madness on St. Patrick Street! This is near the end of his act. The crowd really enjoyed his show! Shot during the St. Patrick’s Festival 2006 in Cork.

Buy a hot dog

Buy a hot dog I’d call them hot dogs simply because I’m ignorant of the German name used on the sign outside this stall. Whatever they’re called they were delicious! Pictured during the St. Patrick’s Festival Cork 2006.
