Open Happiness

Youghal, last April. Coca Cola sells happiness while Tesco tries to sell bargains.

PS. I just posted a gallery of photos from the IBA 09 photowalk last February.

O’Briens Sandwich Bar

O'Briens Sandwich Bar

“O’Briens’ HQ placed in examinership” according to this news report yesterday. This is their fairly recently opened (and more recently closed) “sandwich bar” on Oliver Plunkett Street here in Cork.

Loved their Triple Decker, even if it was a little pricey. Hope the company survives.

The Big Slide

The Big Slide

In Fitzgerald’s Park a week ago the Street Performance World Championship 2009 brought the crowds to the park. This multi story slide was one of the main attractions. Huge long queue for it though.

Emergency at Kilkee Beach

Emergency at Kilkee Beach

The lifeboat at Kilkee is stored at the top of this ramp going down to the water at the beach. At low tide it’s quite a distance and the wide angle makes a great job of getting it all in!

Those two dots on the beach are my family! :)
