I heard last night at the club that 16 images were sold at the Mallow Camera Club exhibition in Mallow Town Library. That will add something like €2,000 to the Niall Mellon Township Trust fund Sean O Riordan is collecting! Well done to everyone, and thanks to everybody who linked and spread the word!

My little baby, Adam, likes the new Wispa bars. Well, he enjoyed throwing this one around and almost got it into his mouth before I stopped him!
‘Course, I gobbled it down shortly afterwards and it was every bit as good as I remembered!
Wispa Bars were on sale in Ireland and the UK up until 2003 when they were discontinued but a recent “Bring Back Wispa” campaign convinced Cadbury to start making them again! Hooray!
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.
Cork Film Festival starts on the 14th of October this year and will run until the 21st.
They’ve obviously spent quite a bit on advertising as these banners are visible all the way up Patrick Street.
Still, I’ve never been to a film during the festival. Others take time off work and sit in darkened theatres for the duration of the festival soaking up the celluloid culture.
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!
My little baby, Adam, was in great mood when I shot this in the Castle Hotel, Blarney a few weeks ago.
