Cu Na Mara

A bright red trawler pictured in Dingle Harbour last September.

The name of the vessel, “Cu Na Mara”, literally means "Hound of the Seas"!

Bigeoino says I made it to the front of “Cork Places”. Does anyone know what that is? Is it a magazine? I’m going to ask in Easons later today.

What The Duck flew away!

OMG! During a test flight of the What the Duck balloon for a parade it broke it’s tether and the wind blew it away! Yikes!

Hehe. Yes, yes. it’s fake. Good video though! Via TOP.

Maxol fuels the boats

A fuel truck from Maxol fuels a boat docked at Dingle Harbour with diesel.

Meanwhile, a long lorry next to it is loaded with goods from the boat. Busy times.

Blue boat out of water

Two small boats tied up and out of the water on the Dingle Peninsula, Co. Kerry.

Blue sky on a dull day

Today is dull, there’s a glimpse of blue out, it’s cold, there’s a chilly wind blowing.

Blue sky and fluffy clouds in Kerry while on holiday. Great memories.

Union Square from afar

Marlboro

Clothes pegs in a textured cloth bag, Marlboro branded plastic bag, 1993 calendar. Shot at my parents-in-law house.

I love the texture of the clothes bag, but that wasn’t what attracted my attention at first. It was the calendar and the Marlboro bag. Since cigarette advertising is now banned it’s unusual to see any sign outside of shops.

Housing market slow?

The Irish housing market is slowing down but sales are still being made.

A tiny house down the road from this one in Blarney sold a few weeks ago even though I’m sure you could hardly swing a cat in it …

You’re a star

So that’s what happens to reality tv show judges when they retire. They go off to Dingle and work on a trawler!

In the background is an old burned out trawler that has been tied up to the quay in Dingle for at least the last 18 months. I have photos of it from last year too!
