Patrick’s Day Crowds

patricks day crowds

Enthusiastic crowds gather on South Mall in Cork for the St Patrick’s Day parade this year. As you can imagine it was pretty awful trying to see the parade with such a large crowd.

The hands at the bottom of the frame are those of a tall man who stood right in front of me. Lucky for me I stretched higher to get my photo!

A young boy sits on his dad’s shoulders to get a bird’s eye view of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Cork this year.

This image reminds me of a photo I shot of a girl last year. She was standing on a wall or something and up high too!

Patrick’s Day Spectator

A spectator watching the St Patrick’s Day Parade in Cork yesterday climbed up on the National Monument on the Grand Parade to get a better view. Lucky him.

As I said yesterday, it was easier and more enjoyable photographing the parade spectators than the parade!

La Fheile Phadraig i gCorcaigh

‘Se seo Lá Fhéile Phadraig inniu. Chuaigh me isteach sa chathair (gan an chlann) chun féachaint ar an paráid ach ni fhacha me moran de. Bhi an meid sin daoine ann. Ni raibh paisti in ann aon rud a fheisceant in aon chor. Bhi sé nios éasca agus bhain me nios mo taineamh as pictuiri a thogaint den lucht féachanta!

D’fhagas 50 noiméad tar éis do tosnu. Bhi my lamha tuirseach o beith ag chuir my camara os mo ceann agus chonaic me nios mo den paraid sa bhaile anseo ar an riomhaire… Ta suas le 300 griangraf togtha agam inniu ach nil an t-am agam obair ortha anocht. B’fheider i gceann cupla la. Nilim cinnte an mbeidh me ag dul ar ais an bhlain seo chugainn. :(

Old couches and mattresses lie in the building site that used to be Philip’s building on Cornmarket Street. Remember that big Philip’s sign on the roof of that building? I wonder if I have photos of that sign ..
