The Grand Parade Construction SIte Another view down the Grand Parade and a look at the construction site that takes up most of the street! Well known shop fronts such as the Singer Sewing Centre are visible in the background. In sharp contrast, the new Soho bar and restaurant is right next to it. It’s […]
Beer kegs on the quay Beer kegs on Union Quay. The Lobby is open again isn’t it? Yum, I like Erdinger! This was taken only moments after this one which probably explains why a keg is sitting at the base of a life ring pole. It’s not some weird “save him and feed him beer” […]
The Puppy and the calf Sasha took quite an interest in a field of calves across the road from her home last night, and they in her! This particular calf was braver than the rest and sniffed at Sasha, Oscar, me and whoever was at the gate! Ali, the cat, didn’t think much of the […]
Run for the bus! A bit of an experiment this one. As I walked along Merchant’s Quay this woman and her husband barrelled past. The picture of her husband is simply a blur but I like what I got of her. The streaky lines are caused by an excessive dodge/burn tool but I like the […]

De-construction on Grand Parade The construction site that is the Grand Parade right now but it will soon look like Patrick’s Street with broad pavements, paving and those flag bearing poles that are so prominent on our main thoroughfare. No Fred photos today, I haven’t had time to work on any. Expect more next week!
Jamin, Joseph and Jamie Joseph and Justin go mad! Justin on Drums Fred played in the Spiegeltent on Tuesday night and as usual put on a great show! Their show is energetic and wild and brilliant! More photos tomorrow! Edit: Donal has great photos of the night. Go look!
