Shandon Bells from Afar

The steeple of St. Anne’s Church towers over the surrounding streets as seen from Coburg Street, Cork last night. I laboured over this photo. I could not get the shade and colour of the houses in the middle-background right for quite a while. Sometimes it was too bright, or too blue, or too dark, or […]

Next time you’re in Cork and you have a spare hour to burn head up to Shandon and into St. Anne’s Church where you can ring the Shandon Bells. They’re heard for quite some distance and any tune can be played. Check out the music in the photo above: “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina”, “Final […]

Shandon Bells

The clock tower of St. Anne’s Church in Shandon is more well known as “Shandon Bells” after the bells that ring out there through out the day. We were so lucky with the weather on Saturday on our little photowalk. Wasn’t it Aidan‘s idea to head up to Shandon? Inspired! Everyone had a great time. […]

North Cathedral, Cork
