The urban landscape as seen from the top of Shandon Bells in Cork.

Mustang

Classic cars all parked up at Charles Fort near Kinsale, Co Cork and I had a ball shooting them. This beautiful blue Mustang was the first to go. The iconic name and good looks attracted quite a few onlookers.

Clancy’s Youghal

clancy's youghal

Clancy’s Bar and Restaurant in Youghal has apparently been closed for quite some time. I never knew the place but my wife was surprised and disappointed to see the For Sale signs outside.

I didn’t even notice the people walking along the road until I looked at the photo on my monitor!

Toilets for the Aliens

Toilets for the Aliens

If aliens from outer space attack Youghal in Co Cork we know at least one building they won’t destroy. Odd looking characters featured on this sign for the public toilets near the beach.

De Lorean DMC-12

de lorean

De Lorean, the 80’s Belfast car manufacturer became a household name after their car’s appearance in Back to the Future. The name is instantly recognisable to a whole generation of people. Unfortunately the De Lorean company had already folded before those films were released.

The car above is the De Lorean DMC-12, the only model the company built. It stopped in front of us while we were having a picnic and I heard a woman across the road saying, “That’s the Back to the Future car!”
Lots more to be found on the Wikipedia page on the car.

Shot in Timoleague, Co Cork about a week ago.

PS. new theme. I missed my sidebar!

Bill Posters & Poster Printers

On the way up to Sunday’s Well you’ll find this fairly permanent sign moulded from cement in the wall of a house. I’m sure the business that put it up is long gone but it’s fascinating that it’s still there.

Des took a photo of it too!

Flowers on North Mall

Flowers on North Mall

The North Mall next to the River Lee in Cork is decorated with beautiful flowers dotted along it’s length. I had to take a few shots of them as I walked back to my car after the Paddy’s Day Parade this year.

Note the Franciscan Well in the background. Nice pub!
