Clancy’s Youghal

Clancy’s Bar and Restaurant in Youghal has apparently been closed for quite some time. I never knew the place but my wife was surprised and disappointed to see the For Sale signs outside. I didn’t even notice the people walking along the road until I looked at the photo on my monitor! Aperture ƒ/9 Camera […]

de lorean

De Lorean DMC-12

De Lorean, the 80′s Belfast car manufacturer became a household name after their car’s appearance in Back to the Future. The name is instantly recognisable to a whole generation of people. Unfortunately the De Lorean company had already folded before those films were released. The car above is the De Lorean DMC-12, the only model […]

Mr Whirly

Whitegate Oil Refinery

Whitegate Oil Refinery in Cork Harbour, as seen from Crosshaven on the other side. What you’re seeing here is Corkbeg Island in the foreground and this chimney stack in the background.

suffering in the heat

Suffering in the heat

It’s hard to believe that Ireland can be warm and roasting given the cold winds that blow around this time of year but back in June last year we had a heat wave. I can’t stand the heat of the sun, and by the looks of things, this gentleman isn’t too fond of it either. […]

Lonely Boat in Fountainstown

A boat sits alone on the hard ground while it’s brethren bob up and down in the tide around Fountainstown in Co Cork. This presented me with a bit of a dilemma. I originally cropped the sky out because it was washed out but after careful work with the RAW image I restored detail to […]
