Last Sunday a “fun day” was held in the square in Blarney. I had completely forgotten about it until we got down there and there was a huge crowd there with food stalls, a bouncy castle and this inflatable slide and various races for all the kids. Shame about the weather though. Barry’s Balloons obviously …

School children While walking back to the car after the Cobh Rambler’s game a few weeks ago I made this picture of a sign on the road. I find it strange that out of the 600-odd images I took that day, this is the first image I’ve uploaded..
