Housing market slow? The Irish housing market is slowing down but sales are still being made. A tiny house down the road from this one in Blarney sold a few weeks ago even though I’m sure you could hardly swing a cat in it …
You’re a star So that’s what happens to reality tv show judges when they retire. They go off to Dingle and work on a trawler! In the background is an old burned out trawler that has been tied up to the quay in Dingle for at least the last 18 months. I have photos of […]
Towering over the Elysian building site It’s amazing how much this building site has changed in the last few years. This was taken last May. Now if you took this picture much of the sky would be blocked out by the 3 or 4 storey building work on this side of the site.

Grand Parade in the shade The buildings of the Grand Parade in Cork face away from the setting sung on a cold February afternoon earlier this year. Cork bathes in the frosty sunlight. This image was of course made of two images, one for the sky and one for the city. It was handheld and […]
