Emerald House B&B

At the corner of the main green in Blarney sits Emerald House B&B. I’ve never stayed there but they have a great location, right next to Blarney Castle.

St. Anne’s looking down on traffic

The steeple of St. Anne’s Church, or “Shandon Bells” as viewed from near the Opera House in Cork. Traffic is as usual stuck at the lights close by ..

Traffic by the Elysian

Traffic stops at the lights by the building site of the Elysian. I passed by the other side of it, past the low rise section of the building and it towers over the street.
It’s massive!

Holiday Caravan

A holiday caravan near a beach on the Dingle Peninsula.

This caravan has been in the same spot for at least the last 2 years, and probably longer. I wanted to shoot it for quite a while but it wasn’t until I converted this shot to b/w that I was happy with it.

Firemen in action

Cork City Fire Brigade were called out this evening to a shop on Patrick Street.

I’m not sure what the emergency was but two fire engines were called to the scene and had a Garda escort on the way there. Maybe a gas leak?
A huge crowd gathered around and when some people saw my camera they just had to pose for a shot .. more on that next week!

Trivia: these are my first shots posted in 2008 that was taken in 2008. Plenty more 2007 ones to go through yet though!
