La Fheile Phadraig i gCorcaigh

‘Se seo Lá Fhéile Phadraig inniu. Chuaigh me isteach sa chathair (gan an chlann) chun féachaint ar an paráid ach ni fhacha me moran de. Bhi an meid sin daoine ann. Ni raibh paisti in ann aon rud a fheisceant in aon chor. Bhi sé nios éasca agus bhain me nios mo taineamh as pictuiri a thogaint den lucht féachanta!

D’fhagas 50 noiméad tar éis do tosnu. Bhi my lamha tuirseach o beith ag chuir my camara os mo ceann agus chonaic me nios mo den paraid sa bhaile anseo ar an riomhaire… Ta suas le 300 griangraf togtha agam inniu ach nil an t-am agam obair ortha anocht. B’fheider i gceann cupla la. Nilim cinnte an mbeidh me ag dul ar ais an bhlain seo chugainn. :(

Old couches and mattresses lie in the building site that used to be Philip’s building on Cornmarket Street. Remember that big Philip’s sign on the roof of that building? I wonder if I have photos of that sign ..

The wires that ring Shandon Bells

The wires that ring Shandon Bells

Next time you’re in Cork and you have a spare hour to burn head up to Shandon and into St. Anne’s Church where you can ring the Shandon Bells. They’re heard for quite some distance and any tune can be played. Check out the music in the photo above: “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina”, “Final Countdown” and more!

Hot Tasty Sausages

While out photowalking a hot sausages in a bun with a dab of mustard is just the thing to keep the hunger at bay. I bought the sausage in the bun being prepared above and totally enjoyed it, even if it was €4.

BTW there’s Kevin in the background!

Daffodils in the Snow

Daffodils in the Snow

Daffodils struggle against the cold and snow in Blarney this morning. Many parts of the country were covered in a white blanket. Snow is still falling. My son loves it of course. We spent 10 minutes in the back garden throwing snow around and I got some great photos!

If you’re in Dublin on St. Patrick’s Day this year make sure you upload your photos to the Pix.ie Festival Group. Pix.ie have got together with St. Patrick’s Festival to give bloggers a chance to get into good positions to shoot the Dublin Parade. I’ll be in Cork that day and I’ll be shooting the Parade here.
I wonder if the organisers down here can do something similar?

More coverage on icedcoffee, Red Mum, Darren Greene Photography, McAWilliams Photoblog and I’m sure on more blogs but I haven’t caught up on my blog reading in ages!
