The Skeleton of the Blackrock Terrace

The Blackrock end of Páirc Uí Chaoimh lies exposed as the stadium has been stripped bare in redevelopment of the area.

This is a panorama stitched together by Affinity Photo with final black and white development done in Lightroom. AP did a great job of stitching the images together and I put the healing brush to good use getting rid of distracting foreground walls.

Parts of Páirc Uí Chaoimh in Blackrock are being demolished as part of the somewhat controversial redevelopment of the area. This Examiner article has some photos and a video of the stadium before demolition:

More Sultans in Blackrock

The Sultan in Blackrock

The Sultan stall in Blackrock Village has to be my favourite. I love their food, it’s always agreed with me and boy is it tasty. This is a photo I took last March when it was a lot colder but the guys were still cheerful. Today Taoufik was cooking and produced a delicious 3 meat combo for me! I would have taken a photo of that but, eh, I was too busy eating it so you’ll just have to find him yourself and order it or head into the Sultan restaurant on Penrose Wharf!
