A long time fixture of the English Market in Cork is this fruit stall run by M F Murphy.
It’s not all doom and gloom for shopkeepers. These ladies were obviously having a great ol’ chat in this shop in the English Market last month.
Another shot from the WW photowalk on July 18th. I seem to be getting a couple of good ones out of that day after all!
A street entertainer plays his guitar on Oliver Plunkett Street, Cork last month during the WW photowalk on the 18th.
I have the winners of the hotel rooms for next month’s photowalk. I picked them with the help of Alexa, Laughing Lion and Andrea who picked the first distinct numbers between 1 and 5. Thanks also to Laura, Elliot (might need rounding up?), Ron and Dena who also responded.
Dotted patterns decorate some of the panels on the new building on Half Moon Street I blogged yesterday. This is on the Paul Street side.

Construction work on the new block on Half Moon Street, Cork nears completion and reflects the brightly lit houses on the far side of the River Lee and the looming grey storm clouds.
This shot’s for Richard who commented on a shot taken the other direction last week.
PS. entries are still being accepted for the free night in the hotel draw. Closes on Friday, so be sure to leave a comment if you’re interested in coming!
The limestone steps and pillars at the front of the Court House in Cork make for an imposing building. Never been in there though. Guess they wouldn’t be too happy with a photographer prowling around? I’ll have to bring a sketch pad.
The bell tower of St. Anne’s Church in Shandon may well be one of the most recognisable sights in Cork but it’s no longer visible down Academy Street and as a consequence, possibly from Patrick Street either.
Back in 2007 I snapped this photo of the tower and it’s well I did because the construction work on Half Moon Street has obscured the view unfortunately.
I pointed out when this was on plans that it would obliterate the last view of Shandon from Patrick Street. Despite all of the City Council’s huffing and puffing regarding views of landmark buildings, we get this rubbish. They would have been better off building a few metres higher and blocking out the fish totally – whats left is merely rubbing our faces in it!
I do like the building that’s there though. Nice curve to it along Half Moon Street.
