TTIP Protestor

TTIP is the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. It’s not something I’m too familiar with but it seems there’s lots of anger about it in certain quarters. This was a protest that took place on Grand Parade last Saturday.

They’re anti GMO too. I learned that animal feed in Ireland now contains genetically modified ingredients and the speaker declared the only way of being sure that the food you eat is safe is if it’s organic. Studies have shown it’s no safer than other types of food, but organic farming is big business. Be as sceptical of their claims as you would any other claims.

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.
