Clontarf Bridge Closed for Repairs

Clontarf Bridge in Cork City is closed for two months as it undergoes major rehabilitation works worth €2.5m according to this Evening Echo article.

Tony O’Sullivan, senior engineer with Cork City Council’s roads department said they understood the disruption the bridge closure would cause, but had no alternative as major rehabilitation work is required.
“For the work to be carried out the bridge will have to be completely encapsulated with material to create factory-like conditions,” he said.

Cork Street Photography July 2015 Photowalk

Some photos from the photowalk last Saturday where the theme of the walk was “Opposites”. I tried to get a few shots that matched that theme but it’s a difficult subject. Even if they’re “off theme” I like a lot of the photos I did shoot and I’m really happy I got as many “keepers” as I did.

The next meetup is next month, come join us!
