One of the few photography shops left in Cork City center, Denis MacSweeney’s shop in Merchant’s Quay is a simple photo development outfit. O’Leary’s Camera World and MacSweeney’s on Oliver Plunkett St. will sell you cameras and all sorts of other photography bits. Unfortunately both shops were out of 77mm filters the last few times I called in.
This man has been selling the Evening Echo on Cork’s Patrick’s Street for years. Here’s a photo of him back in August 2005!

An ESB van passes a pole with a Rossport Shell-to-sea campaign flyer on it.
Shell want to bring oil to land at Rossport in Co. Mayo, and the ESB are massive consumers of oil, gas and coal in their electricity generation business.

Red and white flags flew all over Cork City today and for the past week in anticipation of the All Ireland Football Final between Cork and Kerry.
Unfortunately Kerry won and decisively so too as I heard from my father-in-law Frank who filled me in on all the gory details!
