Ireland Loves Coca Cola

Ireland Loves Coca Cola

A man taking a break in Bishop Lucey Park, Cork. Coca Cola Ireland made headlines last week when it emerged they were going to outsource their distribution network. Unions weren’t happy of course.

Relax in the Park

Relax in the Park

A man relaxes in Bishop Lucey Park while all around him people enjoy the festival that day. Taken during the photowalk last month.

Amazing what cropping does to an image. The original was so busy and I struggled to find the image I wanted out of it but I like this.

Laughter in the English Market

Laughter in the English Market

It’s not all doom and gloom for shopkeepers. These ladies were obviously having a great ol’ chat in this shop in the English Market last month.

Another shot from the WW photowalk on July 18th. I seem to be getting a couple of good ones out of that day after all!

The Lone Guitar

The Lone Guitar

A street entertainer plays his guitar on Oliver Plunkett Street, Cork last month during the WW photowalk on the 18th.

I have the winners of the hotel rooms for next month’s photowalk. I picked them with the help of Alexa, Laughing Lion and Andrea who picked the first distinct numbers between 1 and 5. Thanks also to Laura, Elliot (might need rounding up?), Ron and Dena who also responded.

And, the winners are (cue drum roll, etc):
1. Pa Dineen
2. Kevin
3. Rudy

I better get on to Damien or Pat and tell them. They’ll probably have to get in touch with the winners next week!

Wide Open Spaces

Wide Open Spaces

The wide open space at the top of Patrick’s Street in Cork is a crossroads for traffic going along Cork’s busiest streets. It’d be a nightmare to cross without the pedestrian lights, not that stops people racing or even sauntering across in front of oncoming traffic.
