Quality Irish Meat

A SuperValu lorry delivers produce to their store in Dingle, Co Kerry a number of months ago. While the rest of the country basked in the first rays of a beautiful Summer we were lucky to get two nice days out of seven.

Love the area though, and the staff of the Dingle Skellig Hotel took great care of us!

Rest in Peace

A hand written notice strung up on a pole at the corner of Winthrop Street and Patrick’s Street in Cork records the names of those killed by Israeli commandos recently.

Engine No. 36

Engine No. 36

Engine No. 36 on display in Ken Station in Cork. Here’s what the Wikipedia page on the train station has to say about it:

An old locomotive is on permanent display in the concourse at Kent Station since 1950. “Engine No. 36″ dates from 1847 and is displayed in the booking hall. Originally built by Bury, Curtis, and Kennedy of Liverpool at a cost of £1,955, the engine was obtained by the Great Southern and Western Railway to run services from Dublin to Cork. The engine remained in service until 1874.
She was displayed at the Cork exhibition in 1902, the Railway Centenary Exhibition in 1925 and the bi-centenary of the Royal Dublin Society at Ballsbridge in 1930. She was moved to a new position and restored by Iarnród Éireann in 2007.

I could have sworn that train was on display before 2007, maybe that page is referring to the new interior of the station?

Time for the train

The odd thing about travel is that I’ve probably been in the US more times than I’ve been in Dublin, and certainly have been in London.

Daffodils at the end of our estate line the edge of the road in a beautiful display.

Edit: I’ve just heard the sad news about Danny O’Brien. I never met him but his photography was always amazing. I hope his site can stay online for a long time so people can appreciate his work. My condolences to his family.
