La Fheile Phadraig i gCorcaigh

‘Se seo Lá Fhéile Phadraig inniu. Chuaigh me isteach sa chathair (gan an chlann) chun féachaint ar an paráid ach ni fhacha me moran de. Bhi an meid sin daoine ann. Ni raibh paisti in ann aon rud a fheisceant in aon chor. Bhi sé nios éasca agus bhain me nios mo taineamh as pictuiri a thogaint den lucht féachanta!

D’fhagas 50 noiméad tar éis do tosnu. Bhi my lamha tuirseach o beith ag chuir my camara os mo ceann agus chonaic me nios mo den paraid sa bhaile anseo ar an riomhaire… Ta suas le 300 griangraf togtha agam inniu ach nil an t-am agam obair ortha anocht. B’fheider i gceann cupla la. Nilim cinnte an mbeidh me ag dul ar ais an bhlain seo chugainn. :(

Hot Tasty Sausages

While out photowalking a hot sausages in a bun with a dab of mustard is just the thing to keep the hunger at bay. I bought the sausage in the bun being prepared above and totally enjoyed it, even if it was €4.

BTW there’s Kevin in the background!

Suffering in the heat

suffering in the heat

It’s hard to believe that Ireland can be warm and roasting given the cold winds that blow around this time of year but back in June last year we had a heat wave. I can’t stand the heat of the sun, and by the looks of things, this gentleman isn’t too fond of it either.

Innards of the Building

Innards of the Building

The old Dunnes Stores building on Patrick’s Street in Cork is keeping it’s old style and attractive front facade. Phew. I still think it’s odd how a building site juts out behind it though.

PS. The nominations form for the Irish Blog Awards is now open. If you feel it deserves it, I’d be very grateful if you would nominate this blog in the “Best Photoblog” section. Like last year, I’m not going to stick a huge “vote for me” link on the blog and this is the only mention of the awards I’ll make.

Smiles all around

The smiling attractive face of a model appeared on the hoarding surrounding the building site that is Dunnes Stores in Cork several months ago. It hasn’t had much of an effect on all however.
