Adam and his baby soother

Adam and his baby soother Adam is 5 weeks old today! Last Wednesday we saw his first smile, or perhaps it was trapped wind because he was just after feeding but it was a beautiful sight to behold. He has smiled since too, and was especially cheerful this morning! Adam loves his baby soother though. […]

Cars speed past

Cars speed past Cars speed past as people wait for the traffic lights to change. I shot this by placing the camera on the railing of the bridge behind me.

Pedestrian Zone

Pedestrian Zone Many of the side streets off St. Patrick’s Street in Cork are now pedestrian zones. In fact, Oliver Plunkett Street is closed off to traffic on Saturdays too which is great for shoppers. Check out Donal’s latest photos from his trip to Lesotho. The second group portrait is particularly good!

MEH! No Parking!

MEH! No Parking! Ah graffiti! That most visible of teenage expression on our streets and walls. Anyway, I can’t remember where I took this. It could be one of the side streets off St. Patrick’s Street, but that’s about as vague as “somewhere in Cork” to be honest. Typical Heineken banner flying in the background […]

King of beers

Feeding the horse

Feeding the horse Feeding a horse in a field near Dingle in Co. Kerry. It was a gorgeous beautiful day last September. The sky was blue and dotted with clouds and the sun shone brightly.

Guinness

Guinness Guinness, world famous stout brewed in Dublin, Ireland. It’s also the tipple every tourist to the country samples but I prefer beer myself! This is a sign on a pub on Bridge Street. It’s the one on the corner near Vibes and Scribes. What’s it called?

On dad’s shoulders

On dad’s shoulders A boy grins with delight after the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Cork this year. And why wouldn’t he? He’s sitting tall over everyone else! Larry Tompkins bar is in the background. It was packed with the day’s crowd. PS. The May issue of Digital Journalist has been out for a few […]

Pathway to Gallarus

Pathway to Gallarus If you visit the Dingle Peninsula you must visit the Gallarus Oratory. It’s an early Christian church, possibly built in the 6th century. There is a visitor centre but don’t be fooled into paying the entrance fee. The building is a national monument and the public have a right to see it. […]

EI-128 ready to fly

EI-128 ready to fly Here’s another shot of EI-128. Following my last shot I moved to the other side of the glider to capture some of the beach and hills behind. This was originally shot at an angle to get as much vertical space in but I rotated the image and filled in the sand […]

Heatons Awaken Your Senses

Heatons Awaken Your Senses I jumped at the chance to make this photo when I saw the colour of the Heatons bag and the Super Valu advert on the bus shelter. Only later did I notice just how well the red or wine colours match! Is there a subtle marketing ploy at play here?

Barratts on Patrick’s Street

Barratts on Patrick’s Street A young man enjoying the sun on a warm September afternoon on Cork’s main thoroughfare, St. Patrick’s Street, or Panna as it’s sometimes known locally. That’s probably an iPod he’s listening to isn’t it? Barratts shoe shop is in the background. The side of that shop is visible in Walk This […]

Boy all alone

Boy all alone A little boy sits on the ground near some bikes while all around people talk and enjoy the day. This was taken at the Midleton Food and Drink Festival last year. In the last 3 weeks I’ve worked on perhaps 3 photos, but luckily I had another 50 prepared to tide me […]

Autumn Leaf
