Fitzgerald’s Park Bench

Fitzgerald’s Park Bench A park bench in the lovely and picturesque Fitzgerald’s Park, Cork. Something awful happened. I went away with my family on a great weekend break on Friday and in the rush and stress I forgot to post some photos for the weekend. I’m catching up!

Emergency!

Emergency! In an emergency such as a fire you want to be able to escape from a building quickly and be assured that there’s plenty of water to fight the flames. I presume these capped pipes have something to do with that purpose?

Horgans of Blarney

Horgans of Blarney The Irish flag flies outside Horgans of Blarney, a souvenir shop in the village. Despite the fact that it’s between the butcher’s and a pub, I’ve never been in there. I doubt most locals have been. Still, nice to see the flags waving!

Big brother is watching you

Firemen in action

Firemen in action Cork City Fire Brigade were called out this evening to a shop on Patrick Street. I’m not sure what the emergency was but two fire engines were called to the scene and had a Garda escort on the way there. Maybe a gas leak? A huge crowd gathered around and when some […]

The Anarchist Postman

The Anarchist Postman Graffiti of a postman, or could be a police officer on a wall off South Main Street in Cork. This was taken several months ago but was still there last time I looked! Sorry for the large file size. Jpeg compression doesn’t like random pixels.

Mini skips flying high
