Killeagh Catholic Church

Killeagh Catholic Church

The town of Killeagh in County Cork has a beautiful Catholic Church at one of main street. A neat garden surrounds the building and it’s an eye catching sight for anyone passing through the town. According to a stone embedded in the church wall, it was completed in 1792.

While researching this post I stumbled upon the community site above and then wondered if a similar site existed for Blarney, but no, sadly the main sites you’ll find associated with Blarney belong to local businesses and are commercial affairs. (And for my next project…)

Woodford Bourne & Co

Woodford Bourne and Co

The top of Patrick’s Street in Cork is dominated by Mc Donalds, taking over from Mandy’s in the Woodford Bourne & Co building.

Check out this old advert from 1910. You can still recognise the building! Much more information about that structure can be found here. I vaguely remember Mandy’s but don’t remember it before that.

The 8A Bus

The 8A Bus

A man gets on the 8A bus to Curraheen on Patrick Street, Cork last Saturday.

This was on the way to the photowalk, walking up the street with Chris to where Will had double parked because he was driving home again. Chris had dropped his camera in the car when he got out!

Beauty Treatment at The Body Shop

Beaty Treatment at The Body Shop

I’m still recovering after the photowalk yesterday! I took a quick look through my photos this evening and decided I’m not over the moon about any of them. A couple are ok, but there’s that little critical part of my mind saying, “crap, crap, crap, blah, ‘s ok, focus is off, boring, what were you thinking?” as I look through them.

Anyway, here’s a shot from just before I met everyone else so I guess it can’t be counted really. Shame really as I have another shot of a gentleman getting a bus that I quite like in b/w.

Glad I had the wide angle lens on, caught this beauty treatment in front of The Body Shop on Patrick’s Street. Things are really desperate when shops are hawking their wares on the street trying to entice customers to buy. I saw a guy from Waterstones handing 3-for-2 leaflets outside Easons too. That’s smart. Target your competitor’s customers!

Oh check out Jamie’s post about the day. He has some great shots. Thanks again to everyone who came!
