A yellow rose in Fitzgerald’s Park in Cork. I made this photo a few weeks back and it had just rained, leaving nice little droplets of water on the delicate petals of the flower.
Will the construction work in Cork ever end? They just finished digging up the end of Washington Street and Grande Parade when they dig up that busy corner again.
Not quite as bad as the ESB or Bord Gais running a trench through brand new tarmac and leaving a broken road surface behind.
This shot is from the Grand Parade where brickwork is being laid into the ground around the original fountain that was recently restored there. Pics of that to follow!
This was taken a few days after Adam was born and while an election campaign was in full swing. Outside Cork University Hospital a proud poster announced that Cork University Maternity Hospital opened on March 31st. I can’t remember if it did, or was it a week later, but some smart arse added “Despite the best efforts of the HSE” above the main message. An obvious reference to the bullying tactics employed to get midwifes to work in the new an under-staffed hospital.
Our pet Shih Tzu, Oscar with a tennis ball in his mouth on Garrettstown Beach a few weeks before Adam was born last April.
He loves running after the ball, but the poor little doggy is a bit lame right now. We took him to the vet who couldn’t find anything wrong. This has happened before and he recovered so fingers crossed he gets better this time too.
The strange thing is, it only affects him when he’s walking on pavements or roads. On grass he’s almost fine, and at home you wouldn’t know it from his running around! Dog psychology?
A slightly damaged sign that should read, "Yield Right of Way" in Wilton in front of the CUMH.
Looks like someone took a bite out of it. Are there large animals in Wilton?
The sun hides behind the buildings and street furniture of Patrick’s Street in Cork.
Thomas, a young boy in his buggy on Patrick’s Day this year. He’s well wrapped up against the cold.
I have no idea who he is, so hopefully his name is Thomas, and that’s not some famous brand I’m not aware of.
