Five to Twelve

Five to Twelve

It’s almost noon and I’m at the top of Patrick’s Hill taking photos of the Northside of Cork City. Pictured is St. Anne’s in the foreground, the County Hall in the background and lots in between!

Didn’t have time to work on any shots from yesterday. Too much to do.

The wires that ring Shandon Bells

The wires that ring Shandon Bells

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 Countdown” and more!

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. Next photowalk we’re heading up there again!

North Cathedral, Cork

North Cathedral, Cork

The Cathedral of St. Mary & St. Anne, or the North Cathedral as it’s known in Cork sits right in the middle of this photo. It’s the city’s Catholic cathedral. A large portion of the north side of Cork City surrounds it. Blackpool is immediately behind it, and you can see the Heineken Brewery on the right where Murphy’s Stout and soon Beamish will be brewed.

This shot was taken yesterday from the tower of St. Anne’s Church, or “Shandon Bells”. You can see the huge shadow it casts on the green park and nearby houses! I will post photos from the Irish Blog Awards tomorrow. I’ve hardly had time to sit down today.
