Engarde! Construction continues in Cork

Will the construction work in Cork ever end? They just finished digging up the end of Washington Street and Grande Parade when they dig up that busy corner again.

Not quite as bad as the ESB or Bord Gais running a trench through brand new tarmac and leaving a broken road surface behind.

This shot is from the Grand Parade where brickwork is being laid into the ground around the original fountain that was recently restored there. Pics of that to follow!

YIELD! Right of way

A slightly damaged sign that should read, "Yield Right of Way" in Wilton in front of the CUMH.

Looks like someone took a bite out of it. Are there large animals in Wilton?

Thomas in his buggy

Thomas, a young boy in his buggy on Patrick’s Day this year. He’s well wrapped up against the cold.

I have no idea who he is, so hopefully his name is Thomas, and that’s not some famous brand I’m not aware of.

Bus stop on Mardyke Parade

The bus stop on the Mardyke Parade outside the old Erinville Hospital is on a bus lane, just outside a school. Every single school morning the bus lane is jammed with cars dropping children off.
