Trees on the Marina

The trees along the Marina in Blackrock, Cork are bare at the this time of year but the sun shone today as if it was the height of Summer. It was lovely, even with the biting wind.

Shot from the grounds of Pairc Ui Chaoimh (no relation!) while out walking with my sister, my son Adam who slept quietly in his buggy, and my dog Oscar who loved the long walk.

Going Overboard

Bertie’s going overboard today, hopefully. As I write this Bertie Ahern is speaking and it sounds like a resignation speech. I haven’t heard an apology for lying under oath and deceiving the public yet however.

Unfortunately we’re all going to forget this by the next election. Hopefully the other parties will make hay while the sun shines.

Posting this today as Miriam’s photo of the same sign reminded me I had shot this at Allihies Beach in Co. Cork.
It’s appropriate too.

Edit – he’s out. Bertie Ahern will resign on May 6th 2008.

The Lough Daffodils

We walked around The Lough and wandered over to the daffodils growing by the footpath at one of the lake. That’s Sean Murphy in the background as he preps some of his equipment to take a shot.

Probably my last photo from the Lough Photowalk!

Swans on The Lough

Swans swim past on The Lough in Cork City. This was one of the first photos I took at the recent photowalk there. Despite the clear blue sky and lovely light it was quite cold with a biting wind!

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.
