Barry’s Balloons

Barry's Balloons

Last Sunday a “fun day” was held in the square in Blarney. I had completely forgotten about it until we got down there and there was a huge crowd there with food stalls, a bouncy castle and this inflatable slide and various races for all the kids. Shame about the weather though.

Barry’s Balloons obviously had a hand in supplying some of the entertainment and looked like a lot of fun!

Ireland Loves Coca Cola

Ireland Loves Coca Cola

A man taking a break in Bishop Lucey Park, Cork. Coca Cola Ireland made headlines last week when it emerged they were going to outsource their distribution network. Unions weren’t happy of course.

Castle Street in Ruins

Castle Street in Ruins

A building on Castle Street in Cork City collapsed yesterday crushing a parked car but thankfully not hurting anyone. This is the scene earlier today where the building has been demolished and in the process of being cleared up. As I left, a truck reversed into the street, presumably to take rubble away.

The crushed car is in the foreground and according to a man I met at the scene belongs to a local business man (and still had a year on it’s NCT, don’t think it’ll pass the next one!)

Relax in the Park

Relax in the Park

A man relaxes in Bishop Lucey Park while all around him people enjoy the festival that day. Taken during the photowalk last month.

Amazing what cropping does to an image. The original was so busy and I struggled to find the image I wanted out of it but I like this.

Dominoes or Four Star Pizza?

Dominoes or Four Star Pizza

So, who’s for pizza? I’m quite partial to Dominoes Pizzas but to be honest I haven’t had a pizza from either establishment in quite a while. Odd that both premises are on Washington Street and almost directly across from each other. Makes “shopping around” easier, not that you’d be bothered. Pizza is horribly priced wherever you buy it.

I uploaded a few more shots to my gallery today. As I mentioned already, they’re running a 15% discount until the 27th so now would be a great time to buy a print if you’re interested. :)
