On the way up to Sunday’s Well you’ll find this fairly permanent sign moulded from cement in the wall of a house. I’m sure the business that put it up is long gone but it’s fascinating that it’s still there.

Des took a photo of it too!

Flowers on North Mall

Flowers on North Mall

The North Mall next to the River Lee in Cork is decorated with beautiful flowers dotted along it’s length. I had to take a few shots of them as I walked back to my car after the Paddy’s Day Parade this year.

Note the Franciscan Well in the background. Nice pub!

PS. If you use WordPress you might be interested in this photoblog survey. I filled it out yesterday!

The construction site that was Douglas Shopping Centre’s car park in December 2008. If you go there now you’ll drive up a slope where that digger is and a wall separates where I was standing with the roadway!

No 2 Lisbon

No 2 Lisbon

I’ll probably vote Yes the next time the Lisbon Treaty referendum is run. Who cares about democracy when the country’s in the sh*tter? They’ll only make us do it all over again and slap us around a bit first with the IMF if we say no a second time.

Patty? I’ll give them Patty! A monster descends on a spectator at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Cork this year. I think she was amused! 🙂
