Clontarf Bridge Closed for Repairs

Clontarf Bridge in Cork City is closed for two months as it undergoes major rehabilitation works worth €2.5m according to this Evening Echo article.

Tony O’Sullivan, senior engineer with Cork City Council’s roads department said they understood the disruption the bridge closure would cause, but had no alternative as major rehabilitation work is required.
“For the work to be carried out the bridge will have to be completely encapsulated with material to create factory-like conditions,” he said.

Nohoval Cove

Nohoval Cove at Night

Nohoval Cove in Co Cork is hidden away near Robert’s Cove but is a lonely part of the world. There’s a narrow road going down there, with just about enough parking for three cars. When the tide is in the water comes all the way to the slip and you have to clamber up on a rocky ledge to safety.

This was my first time down there and I had an enjoyable evening with Mark and Henry of Blarney Photography Club!
