Scart Road

Scart Road, or Bothar na Scairte in Bantry, Co. Cork.

When you leave the wide open area near the harbour in Bantry you come across really steep hills to the east. I happened to walk that way pushing a buggy so I had to stop and catch my breath here before heading on up.

Bantry is much bigger than I thought before and I should get some nice urban shots there the next time I’m down that way!

How to send flowers to ladies

Obviously the gentlemen of Bantry are a polite and courteous bunch.

While their women folk are in the public loo an enterprising soul will sell them flowers for their better half!
