H.A.R.T. Fundraiser at Maxi Zoo

H.A.R.T. is an animal rescue organisation operating in the north Cork area who do great work rehoming all sorts of animals. They held a fund raising event in the Maxi Zoo in Douglas Shopping Centre yesterday and we went along to show our support. Here are a few photos!

Honeymoon Cabaret

Yesterday we had lunch in Ammicus, in Douglas while outside the stalls of a market sold all sorts of foods and produce. The road was closed off to traffic for street performers to entertain the crowds. Unfortunately rain probably dampened the spirits of all involved. The showers were really bad!

Here’s Marc and Svetlana Buttersworth, the Honeymoon Cabaret, performing their act to a delighted crowd (with brollies). They were so entertaining, kept the crowd going, and bravely carried on through all but the worst of the showers! Go see them if you hear they’re performing near you!

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!

Customer Parking Only

The Organic Shop in Douglas Cork obviously has problems with non-customers parking in front of the shop. Why else would they put a wheel clamp on prominent display next to their warning sign? Lucky for us we were buying something ..
