Flowers on North Mall

Flowers on North Mall

The North Mall next to the River Lee in Cork is decorated with beautiful flowers dotted along it’s length. I had to take a few shots of them as I walked back to my car after the Paddy’s Day Parade this year.

Note the Franciscan Well in the background. Nice pub!

I’ll probably vote Yes the next time the Lisbon Treaty referendum is run. Who cares about democracy when the country’s in the sh*tter? They’ll only make us do it all over again and slap us around a bit first with the IMF if we say no a second time.

Shot on the hill leading down from Sunday’s well to the North Mall.

Shly? Ever since I took this photo it’s always bugged me what that means. Ice cream van on a very warm day in Kinsale, Co Cork.

Not the first time I shot this particular ice cream van either!
