Quality Irish Meat

Quality Irish Meat

A SuperValu lorry delivers produce to their store in Dingle, Co Kerry a number of months ago. While the rest of the country basked in the first rays of a beautiful Summer we were lucky to get two nice days out of seven. Love the area though, and the staff of the Dingle Skellig Hotel […]

Originally built by […]

Crowded daffodils

Daffodils at the end of our estate line the edge of the road in a beautiful display. Edit: I’ve just heard the sad news about Danny O’Brien. I never met him but his photography was always amazing. I hope his site can stay online for a long time so people can appreciate his work. My […]

River Nore, Kilkenny

River Nore, Kilkenny

The River Nore runs through the city of Kilkenny where we spent a weekend earlier this month at WordCamp Ireland.

False dawn of the city

False dawn of the city

As you may have already guessed, that’s not the dawn. It’s the lights of Cork City (and Blarney) shining and into the sky in a long exposure shot I made last August. I had meant to mention this sooner but 2 weeks ago I was shocked to hear about the death of Debbie Metrustry (@debbiemet), […]
