North Cork Kittens

North Cork Kittens

Budget 14 is started shortly but I doubt these kittens are interested. While visiting friends near Fermoy we went for a walk and came across 5 beautiful kittens wandering down the road. My wife scooped up one of them and a local resident stopped to take the kitten. Eventually, there were three cars parked along […]

angelas-shop

Angela’s Shop in Fountainstown

Angela’s Shop and Coffee Dock in Fountainstown Co Cork. This shop has been at the beach in Fountainstown for the last 20 years (according to the owner) but I had never ventured inside until today. We were served lovely cups of tea which we enjoyed outside in the blazing sun. I had hoped to shoot […]

railway-tunnel

Railway Tunnel

A tunnel under the railway line between Cork and Mallow that eventually ends up in “the big smoke”, Dublin (Only ever heard Dublin people refer to Dublin by that name..) I believe the road heads to Whitechurch where we’re heading tomorrow for a meal with some Polish friends. There are great winding roads off the […]

No. 20, Bantry

No. 20, Bantry I walked around Bantry Town a bit snapping the local streets and this house appealed to me. I think I saw it in b/w and the lovely texture of the walls. It could also have been the hill and I wanted a small break from pushing the buggy around too of course.

The long road

The long road A road winds into the hills north of Bantry. Yesterday’s photo of the Bantry hills was taken just up the road from here! I joined Red Bubble yesterday and sold a photo already, although I think it was Pete who bought it as I emailed him last night about it. Nice selection […]

Sunshine on the Conor Pass

Sunshine on the Conor Pass This will probably be the final photo from that September 2006 visit to the Conor Pass. It’s taken earlier than some of the others but I’m a sucker for leading lines so it had to go in! I love the reflection in the water on the valley floor, and the […]

I can hardly see myself

I can hardly see myself As I said previously, thick fog was rolling across the Conor Pass. It was frightening how fast it moved and the light and scene changed utterly. Here’s it’s obscuring the road down the Pass, making the too-narrow road even more treacherous. I think by the time we left, even this […]

Chains of property

Chains of property Chains line the road outside the entrance to the private manor next to Blarney Castle.

Slow down in 2008

Slow down in 2008 I’m going to slow down this year. I’ve been trying to keep up with everyone else, moving without thinking, on auto pilot sometimes. I blog too fast. There! I’ve said it. I tried to post here, to Holy Shmoly!, to The Funny Video Blog every day but there’s only so much […]

The road to Blarney Castle

The road to Blarney Castle This is the private road to the estate on which Blarney Castle sits. As I was walking about one late winter afternoon I spotted the lovely light shining through the trees and just had to take a snap!

Irish Adult Store

Irish Adult Store There are I think 3 adult stores in Cork. Two are down by Parnell Place, or at least they were, and the other is pictured above! One of the adult stores in Cork is down a small, narrow little road called Grafton Street. The alley is so small that it doesn’t even […]
