Horse Trough in Parnell Place

Horse Trough in Parnell Place

It’s been many years since horses have drunk from this trough in Parnell Place, Cork but it’s great this old street furniture is still here. There’s a similar one on Alfred Street, in front of Mc Loughlin’s.

An Bhlarna

The sign points the way to Blarney or Blarna in Irish. If you’re interested, that’s pronounced “blawrnah”

“Secrets”, an adult store, occupies the building at the centre of this photo.

Parking for the Guinness

Look up for unusual perspectives on ordinary scenes. I was quite happy with this image of a lamppost in Parnell Place, Cork when I took it. The signs are clearly visible and the upside-down Guinness logo catches the eye!

You have to wonder, what’s more important, Guinness or parking?
