The Signs in Blarney

The Signs in Blarney The signs in Blarney always point towards a B&B! This bunch of signs do anyway. Right at the end of Station Road there’s a pole with signs to about a dozen B&Bs! If you ever need somewhere to stay in Blarney you shouldn’t have trouble finding accomodation! Link of the Day […]

The Look, Dad, The Yawn

The Look, Dad, The Yawn An experiment in high-key cross processing. Pictured on Patrick Street, Cork. Howto and what is cross processing?

Working

Working When you travel to Cork by train you’ll pass underneath the north side of the city through a railway tunnel. We had to switch trains on the way back from Dublin the other day and finished our journey in one of Iarnrod Eireann’s old stock. They didn’t even turn the lights on as we […]

Mackey’s in Blarney

Mackey’s in Blarney Mackey’s is a restaurant in Blarney which I have yet to visit. To be honest, I haven’t been to most of the establishments around here and don’t expect to call to this one any time soon. Their prices are just a little expensive. In the reflection you can see The Muskerry Arms, […]
