Q Here

Q Here I’m going to Dublin on Wednesday and wanted to buy my train tickets in plenty of time. Here’s a shot of the queue outside the ticket office in Kent Railway Station, Cork. Tickets are expensive at 56 Euro for a return ticket to Dublin. A 160 mile journey that takes almost 3 hours!

Waltzers in Crosshaven!

Waltzers in Crosshaven! If a Cork person tells you they’re going to the Merries, don’t look at them strangely. They want to go to the funfair! The Merries in Crosshaven have been there for years, and last September myself and Jacinta went on the Waltzers. It was a slow day, and early in the evening […]

Hazel O’Connor live in An Cruiscin Lan, Cork

Hazel O’Connor live in An Cruiscin Lan, Cork Cormac De Barra accompanying Hazel O’Connor Hazel O’Connor performed in An Cruiscin Lan last night. She has a great voice, and her songs are very emotionally charged and from the heart. I loved how she told a short story about each song. It really brought it home […]

Eating or Politics?

Eating or Politics? Sometimes it’s the little things in life that concern us more than the big picture. I’m sure I heard about Sean Garland on the news but for the life of me, I can’t remember when. There’s a lot more information on him on seangarland.org and Wikipedia.

Faces in the crowd

Faces in the crowd This is not just a trick of the zoom lens. The crowds in town on Saturday were like those around Christmas. Christmas lights are already up, but not lit, and there was an urgent air about the place. This is the second shot of this scene and it turned out much […]

Remembering Cork

Remembering Cork [1] [2] The corner of Patrick’s Quay and Patrick’s Bridge in the 1930s and 2005. I barely remember Merchants Quay as a street lined with old 3 storey houses before the large shopping complex was built there and opened in 1989. 1930s picture taken by Robert Day, copyright Amy and Chris Ramsden, taken […]

Waving at you!

Waving at you! He was holding a promotional sign in the middle of Patrick Street so I don’t feel too bad about looking over his shoulder and snapping this shot!

Patrick Street Lights

Patrick Street Lights Car lights become abstract lasers of light along the main street of Cork City. In unrelated news, this morning I had to go to the hospital because something got stuck underneath the eyelid of my left eye yesterday. I could feel it there, my eye was weeping, it was sore and annoying. […]
