The Human League

The Human League played to a packed crowd in Cork last night. Murphy’s sponsored the event as part of their Little Big Nights Out promotion so there was plenty of the black stuff drunk. I still have my voucher if anyone wants it?

The band played most of their hits, mixing in songs I’ve never heard as I’ve never bought any of their albums. Still, it was surreal hearing them sing Don’t you want me and other songs that synonymous with 80’s music!

Yes girls, there’ll be a picture of Phil Oakley in a few days time …

An entertaining statue

A street performer in Galway City last September. Put money in his box and he’d shake a bit and make some noise. Only kids stopped to watch him.

Adults hurried by.

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!
