Michael O’Regan and a Customer

Michael O’Regan is a well known sight on St. Patrick Street, Cork, selling the Evening Echo for over forty years from a couple of spots on the street.
Ten years ago I took a photo of him and promised I’d make a print for him. It took some time but last weekend I handed him a large print of that same photo. He was delighted, and posed for another photo along with a customer who had just bought a paper off him!

2015 St. Patrick’s Day in Blarney

2015-03-17-0948-m

A few photos from the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Blarney today. It was a fabulous day for the parade. The sun was shining and it was warm. The parade went off with barely a hitch (one of the classic cars needed a push at one point) and it was great fun to watch. My favourite would have to be the toilet one by Blarney Drain Services! I was going to say it was a float but saying “toilet float” makes me feel ill.
