Romanes Eunt Domus

Romans go home! No! It’s “Romani ite Domum”!

Ah, the Life of Brian. What a film. Great fun that was.

At a military show in Cork City Gaol last year we saw a display of Roman Legions fighting and a small history lesson in the life and times back then. It was a fascinating display and I must dig up some more of the photos I shot that day!

Football on the beach

3 boys playing with a football on Garretstown Beach. The tide was coming in and I watched them kick the ball out into the water. The day was freezing though with a strong offshore wind. Brrrr.
