Hot Tasty Sausages

hot tasty sausages

While out photowalking a hot sausages in a bun with a dab of mustard is just the thing to keep the hunger at bay. I bought the sausage in the bun being prepared above and totally enjoyed it, even if it was €4.

Shot on Cornmarket Street at the Crepe Man stall during the pre-Irish Blog Awards photowalk in Cork.

BTW there’s Kevin in the background!

Doorstep

doorstep

A doorstep next to the Bodega on Cornmarket Street Cork. Does anyone remember what building was here? It’s always been empty as long as I remember!

Guysal Ltd

guysal ltd

Guysal Ltd must had an office on Cornmarket Street some time ago as the phone numbers above aren’t valid Cork numbers any more. Both should have a “4” prefix now. This wall was exposed during the extensive construction work on the old Guy and Company building on that street.

Guysal Ltd are now in Ovens, Co. Cork.

Cock Pit Lane, Cork

Cock Pit Lane, Cork

I wouldn’t be surprised if you didn’t know where Cock Pit Lane was, or if you had never heard of it. It’s a small lane off Cornmarket Street, Cork.

I was fascinated by the slight change in meaning of the English and Irish names. The Irish name, “Lana Troid Coileach” literally means, “Cock Fight Lane”, a much less politically correct interpretation I’m sure you’ll agree. I don’t think the name changed in recent times because the only hit for this lane in Google is a PDF file listing O’Shea family members. Apparently William Shea, a publican, lived on Cock-Pit Lane in 1795. Pity there isn’t any more information.

This wasn’t shot yesterday at the photomeet, but I will be posting more of yesterday’s shots during the week!

The Color Kids

Two kids running along Cornmarket Street last August had a great time. I don’t think they were being chased by anyone so it was pure innocent fun!

Heading into the hospital again shortly. In between taking care of Adam with Jacinta I watched Kill Bill 2 on the Macbook which has become a glorified DVD player. I’m tempted to copy over some of my WP projects so my brain doesn’t turn to mush. I have three ideas for different plugins I’m trying to find time to code.
