Last of the Construction Workers

Recession, recession, re… The R Word. Construction workers on the site of the new shopping center in Cork City on Patrick’s Street.

Innards of the Building

Innards of the Building

The old Dunnes Stores building on Patrick’s Street in Cork is keeping it’s old style and attractive front facade. Phew. I still think it’s odd how a building site juts out behind it though. PS. The nominations form for the Irish Blog Awards is now open. If you feel it deserves it, I’d be very […]

Lisbon Treaty Referendum 2

So, it’s confirmed. The Irish didn’t vote the way the Government or the EU wanted and we have to vote again. I wonder if there will be a third referendum if we dare to vote No again? Aperture ƒ/9 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 72mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/160s
