Kilkee Beach

Kilkee Beach in County Clare is a beautiful stretch of sand going on forever and ever. Well, seems like it, it’s a massively long beach and on the day we accidentally discovered it the sun was beating down on us. Hooray!

I have no idea what RMA stands for. That little rock was sitting next to the shell where I found it.

Shell To Sea

Shell To Sea

The “Shell to Sea” stand in Bishop Lucey Park during the “Peace in the Park” event a few weeks ago.

Like a lot of people I’m sick and tired of the protests in Co Mayo against the pipeline Shell want to build to bring gas to an onshore facility. This story and photos of an exploded natural gas pipeline in Virginia, USA almost changed my mind. Then I realised there must be tens of thousands of natural gas pipelines and they very rarely blow up in such a spectacular fashion.

Still, does make me think twice about dismissing the protesters as a bunch of crazies.

McCarthy's Garage, Schull

An old abandoned garage in Schull, Co. Cork caught my eye a few months ago. It’s in stark contrast to the prosperity of the town. Plenty of opportunities for photos and I’ll be posting a few more shots in the coming days!
