Blarney in the Snow

Blarney in the Snow

It started to snow this morning in Blarney shortly after 6:30am and it has snowed continually for the last few hours. There’s a nice white coat on the grass and trees but the roads have turned to slush making them somewhat treacherous. They’ll be a lot worse if the snow freezes so I hope it all disappears nice and quickly!

Telecom Club

Telecom Club

The Telecom Club on McCurtain Street, Cork.

Telecom Éireann was the state telecoms monopoly until other companies came into the country some years ago but in it’s current state, Éircom, they still own most (all?) the copper phone lines that go into homes here.

I’m not sure of the history of the Telecom Club in Cork, but I have been in there. A few years ago I took Spanish classes there for about 3 months until my interest waned. Don’t take that for a sign of how you’ll do with your new year’s resolutions. :)
