Clancy’s Youghal

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!

Toilets for the Aliens

If aliens from outer space attack Youghal in Co Cork we know at least one building they won’t destroy. Odd looking characters featured on this sign for the public toilets near the beach.

De Lorean DMC-12

de lorean

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 the company built. It stopped in front of us while we were having a picnic and I heard a woman across the road saying, “That’s the Back to the Future car!”
Lots more to be found on the Wikipedia page on the car.

Shot in Timoleague, Co Cork about a week ago.

PS. new theme. I missed my sidebar!

The construction site that was Douglas Shopping Centre’s car park in December 2008. If you go there now you’ll drive up a slope where that digger is and a wall separates where I was standing with the roadway!

These old style cars were all the rage for about 5 minutes a few years ago weren’t they?

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. Took me a while to figure that out! Zoom out of either map and draw a straight line through both going south west to pin point where I was standing when I took the photo 🙂
