Corned Brisket

Corned Brisket

One of the many butchers in The English Market. I’ve had brisket a few times, but only ever in the USA. Doesn’t seem to be a popular cut of meat here.

Taken on the World Wide Photowalk on July 18th.

Square Deal

Square Deal

Square Deal Interiors where we bought several items of furniture recently. Absolutely huge showrooms and nice helpful staff. Prices seemed reasonable too, even if they did take a big chunk out of my credit card.

Shoe Shopper Heaven

Shoe Shopper Heaven

I’m reliably informed that many women enjoy the occasional trip to shoe shops and other establishments were garments and other finery may be purchased. Thankfully my wife isn’t one of them and hates shopping almost as much as I do. Nevertheless we found ourselves inside this shoe shop in Chicago so I decided to make the most of the moment and snap a few photos.

Pumpkins For Sale

Pumpkins For Sale

Pumpkins for sale in the local store in Breckenridge, Colorado. I post this today because Dunnes Stores are selling pumpkins and they’re only half the size of the large pumpkins pictured here!

Does anyone actually eat pumpkins? They’re a new sight in Irish shops, and are only ever for sale in the large chains around Halloween.

The English Market Olive Stall

The olive stall in the English Market, Cork is a well known part of this indoor market. There is always a queue of people waiting to bu some of their delicious produce.

If you like the olives you get in jars, try some fresh ones. You’ll be blown away by the flavour!

Trolleys

Trolleys

Trolleys outside Quinnsworth Tesco in Douglas last weekend. There’s such manic building going on in Douglas right now it’s a nightmare for any driver trying to get around the place. Hopefully it won’t last too much longer but they seemed to be digging up the carpark there for ages. Now it’s on to the road with bored signallers waving traffic on or stopping it as their mood dictates.

Little girl goes shopping

A young girl on Patrick’s Street pushes her buggy with her mothercare bag. See the face she’s making? She means business!
