For sale at Sherry FitzGerald

For sale at Sherry FitzGerald These are the swanky new offices of estate agent Sherry FitzGerald in Cork. I find it intriguing that the owners decided to bring in other agents to sell the other floor space in the building. There are signs for Savills/Hamilton Osborn King and Lisney on the top floor directly above […]

Marlboro

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 […]

Montague Burton the Tailor of Taste

Montague Burton the Tailor of Taste Like the stone laid by Barbara Jessie Burton in 1927, this doorway probably goes unnoticed by most people on Prince’s Street. It’s right next to the stone linked above, but the door is usually closed. I spotted this colourful mosaic out of the corner of my eye and recognised […]

Cork Film Festival

Cork Film Festival Cork Film Festival starts on the 14th of October this year and will run until the 21st. They’ve obviously spent quite a bit on advertising as these banners are visible all the way up Patrick Street. Still, I’ve never been to a film during the festival. Others take time off work and […]

Ramones Fan

Jesus Christ still loves you

Jesus Christ still loves you A year ago I photographed this man holding the sign saying Jesus Christ Loves You in San Francisco. Amazingly he’s still in the same spot. That’s dedication for you!

Santa & Cole in Cork

Santa & Cole in Cork Santa came to Cork early this year, sort of. This metal work is from somewhere on the Grand Parade in Cork. It’s designed by the firm of Santa & Cole, obviously, and seems to be a perfect place for people to throw their litter unfortunately.

The Elysian will be so wonderful

The Elysian will be so wonderful If you’ve driven around Cork over the past year you can’t fail to miss the huge 17 storey tower going up in the south of the City. It’s called the Elysian and when it’s finished it will I think be the tallest building in the Republic of Ireland. Now, […]

Absolutely crazy in Ireland

Absolutely crazy in Ireland I spotted this sticker on the pier at Currabinny, Co. Cork. I have no idea what “Absolutely, Crazy – Cowes’05″ refers to and a quick bit of research didn’t show up anything. Does this ring a bell with anyone?

The Yellow Mini

The Yellow Mini A yellow BMW Mini parked on the Washington Street a while back. It sure has room in that parking space doesn’t it?

Wow! A super hero!

Wow! A super hero! This is for all the fans of Marvel and DC Comics publications! Super heroes do exist. They live in Cork, and hand out leaflets on Patrick’s Street in front of Dunnes Stores!

Light trails on Oliver Plunkett Street

Light trails on Oliver Plunkett Street Light trails from a passing car leave their mark on this long exposure shot of Oliver Plunkett Street in Cork. Can you see pink lights on the vertical poles standing at the edge of the pavement? On my Linux box they’re clear as day but I can’t see them […]

Which way to Radio Kerry?

Which way to Radio Kerry? A wall in Killarney, Co. Kerry in February this year. I love the red brick and the assortment of colours – blue, red, gold, black and the creeping green at the end of the wall.
