Shandon Bells

shandon bells

The clock tower of St. Anne’s Church in Shandon is more well known as “Shandon Bells” after the bells that ring out there through out the day.

We were so lucky with the weather on Saturday on our little photowalk. Wasn’t it Aidan‘s idea to head up to Shandon? Inspired! Everyone had a great time. Next photowalk we’re heading up there again!

The difference is we’re Irish

The difference is we’re Irish

Dunnes Stores, Blackpool in Cork City. Recent Dunnes Stores adverts finish with the byline, “The difference is we’re Irish”. It stinks of desperation as everyone north of Dublin heads up to Northern Ireland to shop!

The Chicago Theatre

The Chicago Theatre on State Street in the city of the same name. The sign in front is hard to miss but I’ve never been in there. Maybe next time I visit Chicago. More info on the theatre’s history page. Love that Netscape favicon!

This was shot in 2005 but I know I have shot the same scene a number of times.

Which way? To the carpark and drive home, or the ferry to Oilean Chleire?

Build ’em up and knock ’em down

Build 'em up and knock 'em down

We build them up and then knock them down. It’s expected that demolition of empty houses and residential housing estates will be a boon for the construction industry before too long.

This is the junction in front of Emmett Place in Cork. Visible are the Cork Opera House and the cranes in the distance.

WordPress MU 2.7 is finally out. That’s taken quite a while to build but thanks to the GPL it won’t ever be broken down 🙂

Father Mathew’s Yoyo

Father Mathew's yoyo

The statue of Father Mathew, the “Apostle of Temperance”, is a prominent landmark in Cork City. It’s at one end of St. Patrick Street looking north to the river. Some joker gave him a yoyo to pass the time..

Calor

Calor gas bottles sit on the quay in Baltimore Co Cork, waiting to be collected. I presume they’re empty or someone would have made off with them..

PS. One of my photos was used in Day 9 on photochallenge.org.
