St. Patrick’s Day Tricolour Girl

A young girl leans on a traffic light where she has a bird’s eye view of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Cork.

Church Flowers

Flowers outside The Lough Parish Church, “Church of the Immaculate Conception”.

You can read more about the church and mass times at the The Lough Parish page on the Diocese website.

The pigeon flies away!

Besides the beautiful swans, there’s the usual gathering of pigeons waddling along on the path picking up bread crumbs.

Too tempting. I had to chase after them and encourage them to fly a little. Some of them need the exercise!

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!


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?
