A flash in the night

Just before the Covid-19 pandemic hit Ireland properly in late February 2020 Blarney Photography Club had an evening session dedicated to flash photography. I’ve already posted a couple of the photos from that night but here are a few more from the night of February 20th, 2020, or 2020-02-20!

Queuing for Gorbys

Queuing for Gorbys

A bunch of lads queuing for Gorbys on Oliver Plunkett Street, Cork in 2007. Nightclubs are due to open soon again.

2,399 new cases of Covid-19 today. Even with vaccination I think we can expect a huge surge in about two weeks. I’ll be glad if I’m wrong.

The Oldest Bridge in Ireland

The Oldest Bridge in Ireland

The oldest bridge in Ireland is claimed to be this bridge built by St. Patrick in the 6th century. It’s on the grounds of Moville Boutique Hostel in Co. Donegal.

I say “claimed” because there are others such as the Esker Bridge in Dublin and this one in Trim.

Who knows? The hostel is lovely and well worth a visit so you might as well visit the bridge while you’re there!
