Towering Over Our Heads

The Clock Tower in Youghal is an imposing building close up, especially as it’s so unusual in having a tunnel through it’s ground floor! We’re going to have a photowalk in Cork on Saturday, September 26th. It’s going to be sometime in the morning, before noon but that won’t really matter because hopefully most of […]

The End is Nigh (and booted out the backdoor while we weren’t looking). Shot in Youghal a few months back. Aperture ƒ/5.6 Camera Canon […]

Clancy’s Youghal

Clancy’s Bar and Restaurant in Youghal has apparently been closed for quite some time. I never knew the place but my wife was surprised and disappointed to see the For Sale signs outside.
