Pog Mo Thoin san Daingean

“Kiss my ass!” That’s what “póg mo thóin” means. This is from a shop display in Dingle, Co. Kerry. The town, also known by it’s Irish name, An Daingean, is in an Irish speaking part of the country collectively known as An Gaeltacht.

If you’re interested, you’d probably pronounce “póg mo thóin” in English as “pogue mahone”.

Interesting trivia – The Pogues got their name from this short phrase.

Both Ryan and Daragh got their free mini cards from moo.com but I’m still waiting on mine. They have been shipped so they’ll arrive soon I hope. Check out Daragh’s shot of his cards for an imaginative way of photographing them!

Wanted: photographer to shoot nude photoshoot

This thread on boards.ie ran a bit out of control. Mention the words “naked” and “girl” in the same sentence and you’re bound to have a whole bunch of testoserone filled males jumping in to offer their advice and opinions.

Anyway, someone is looking for a photographer to do her first “Suicide Girls” shoot. Read the thread if you’re in the Dublin area and are interested. Out of the replies so far, there’s perhaps 3 on-topic messages.

While on the topic of Irish forums, if you’re looking for another one, there’s also Photography Ireland.net which is run by Mark in Bandon. It hasn’t been going very long but it’s already very active and worth a look!

From that thread, this video documentary about the life of a fashion photographer cracked me up!
