Walking on air My brother Cathal leapt into the air to head the ball when Kilkully Decking played Mulligans played at Turners Cross a few weeks ago. Unfortunately they lost, but it was a great game of football. Cathal played a blinder!
Whirling around and around A merry-go-round or whatever you call it kept the kids entertained in the Peace Park last night as Santa visited courtesy of 96FM. Even the Lord Mayor of Cork turned up. He had no problems finding parking. I saw his car parked up on the broad new pavement outside the park. […]
For sale at Sherry FitzGerald These are the swanky new offices of estate agent Sherry FitzGerald in Cork. I find it intriguing that the owners decided to bring in other agents to sell the other floor space in the building. There are signs for Savills/Hamilton Osborn King and Lisney on the top floor directly above […]
Cu Na Mara A bright red trawler pictured in Dingle Harbour last September. The name of the vessel, “Cu Na Mara”, literally means "Hound of the Seas"! Bigeoino says I made it to the front of “Cork Places”. Does anyone know what that is? Is it a magazine? I’m going to ask in Easons later […]

Towering over the Elysian building site It’s amazing how much this building site has changed in the last few years. This was taken last May. Now if you took this picture much of the sky would be blocked out by the 3 or 4 storey building work on this side of the site.
Hmm. I’m seething! I’m angry! I’m pissed off! Yesterday I explained why I “reserve all rights” on my photographs. I want control over how and where they are used. I don’t want a photo of my 7 month old son to appear in an inappropriate context. There are other restrictions on usage. When I photograph […]
The Stanley Super 800 crowd The crowd went mad cheering and shouting when filming of Stanley Super 800′s Gatecrashing video finally stopped. You wouldn’t believe how many takes a music video takes but they were as vibrant and cheerful at the end as at the start! Amazing! Image processed through the “Urban Acid” plugin that […]
