Glass Clouds

Glass Clouds

It’s odd sometimes when you’re traveling through the towns of Ireland and you come across the remnants of the Celtic Tiger, usually newly built and empty office buildings.

This is one such building, near the waterfront in the town of Kilrush in County Clare. It faces on to a broad street but all the other buildings are more traditional ones. This glass fronted edifice looked very empty on the day we walked past.

Rain on the River

Rain on the River

Rain falls on a river in a town in County Clare while we were stuck in a traffic jam. I used to know what town this was taken in but now it’s a mystery. It did have a very distinctive walled off area right in the middle of the river though. Anyone recognise it?
