Hillside Chains

hillside chains

Rusted chains lie on the ground near the walkway to the Mizen Head Lighthouse.

Just saw Star Trek. In my head it was the best thing since sliced bread but it was still a great film. Loved the little nods to the original series. Definitely worth going to see!

Thatched Roof in Bunratty

A thatched roof on one of the cottages in Bunratty Folk Park, County Clare.

There’s one ugly open mine right next door but it’s well hidden. I had no idea it was there until I checked Google Maps a minute ago!

David Rowell & Co

David Rowell & Co

Do you know where Daly’s Bridge in Cork is? Sure you do. If you’ve lived in Cork you’ve probably walked across it even!

After one such excursion I snapped this photo to remind me to look up the printed name above. Turns out David Rowell & Co were a company, “that fabricated wrought iron and wire rope, built suspension footbridges, and structural steel frame buildings”. They traded from 1850 to 1970.
Among their accomplishments is Daly’s Bridge in Cork, or as it’s known locally, “the Shaky Bridge” near Fitzgerald’s Park.

So now you where Daly’s Bridge is!
