Barratts on Patrick’s Street

Barratts on Patrick’s Street A young man enjoying the sun on a warm September afternoon on Cork’s main thoroughfare, St. Patrick’s Street, or Panna as it’s sometimes known locally. That’s probably an iPod he’s listening to isn’t it? Barratts shoe shop is in the background. The side of that shop is visible in Walk This […]

JCB on the street

JCB on the street A JCB helps to dig up the Grand Parade in Cork. This was shot last September and like the previous couple of shots, this street is completely different now. It’s looking well, although the fancy stonework is begining to lose it’s shine. The chewing gum is sticking, and the fumes of […]

Strolling on the Grand Parade

Strolling on the Grand Parade If that couple were to walk along the Grand Parade now they’d be in the middle of a busy street but back in August last year it was still a building site. Wondering what Cork looked like over 20 years ago? Take a look at these photos!

Running along Grand Parade

Running along Grand Parade Just outside the Peace Park on Grand Parade in Cork an exuberant teenager went running towards me and I was lucky enough to grab this shot before they ran past!

Walk this way

Walk this way Pedestrians in Cork walk up and down Prince’s Street. One person has to be different, the odd one out eh? Grrr. Flickr’s Post by email function is broken.

A shark at Kay O’Connell’s fishmongers

A shark at Kay O’Connell’s fishmongers A shark’s deadly grin greeted customers to the fishmongers in the English Market on the day this photo was taken. Don’t you just love the expression on the fishmonger’s face? PS. Claire took some great portraits on Saturday!

Cork City Tour Bus

Cork City Tour Bus The Tour Bus just left without me! An open top bus brings tourists around the city, where to? I’m not sure, I’ve never taken it! This was on Grand Parade about 9 months ago. The plastic dividers in the middle of the street are now gone and where that bus is […]

EI-128 on Inch Strand

EI-128 on Inch Strand Last September a large group of glider enthusiasts spent a weekend at Inch Strand in Co. Kerry. They were from two clubs, one in Dublin and one from further north I think. I took down their details but that scrap of paper is long lost at this stage. Conditions weren’t the […]

Cornmarket Street commerce

Cornmarket Street commerce Fruit and other produce are still sold on Cornmarket Street although it’s more commonly known as the Coal Quay.

Antennas in the sky like sentinels

Antennas in the sky like sentinels Antennas reach to the sky above San Francisco. I’m not sure of the name of this hill, or how to get there again! Niall showed myself and Mark around up there before heading down by the Bay Bridge, grabbing a bite to eat in a local restaurant and finally […]

The Color Kids

The Color Kids Two kids running along Cornmarket Street last August had a great time. I don’t think they were being chased by anyone so it was pure innocent fun! Heading into the hospital again shortly. In between taking care of Adam with Jacinta I watched Kill Bill 2 on the Macbook which has become […]

Scared Child

Scared Child A girl looked up at me from her buggy as I took her photo with the wide angle lens of my camera. This was taken just after the St. Patrick’s Day Parade this year and the place was black with people, especially outside the The Larry Tompkins pub so no wonder she was […]

It’s a boy!

It’s a boy! Please welcome the newest member of the O Caoimh clann! Adam was born this morning at 5:51am and we couldn’t be happier! Now I’m off to bed, I’ve had 4 hours sleep in the last 2 days.

The Art of Negotiation

The Art of Negotiation A group of boys discuss the day’s market in Midleton at the Food and Drink Fair there last September. I’m off to the hospital again. I came home for a few hours sleep. Strong coffee day today methinks and no sign of baby just yet. Don’t even contemplate ringing me unless […]

Mother and baby on the street

Mother and baby on the street A mother and her baby stroll along St. Patrick’s Street Cork. This was taken last September in beautiful Autumn weather. This morning started with a bang when Jacinta woke me at 5am because an ear infection was bothering her so much. We went to South Doc who were absolutely […]
