Coumeenoole Beach last July. Lots of people on the beach, and despite the warning signs, plenty in the water too!

The Fountainstown Wreck

The Fountainstown Wreck

Tucked away behind Fountainstown Beach is a wrecked boat that has been there for many years. I wonder how many people know it’s there?

Storage Tanks on the Docklands

Storage Tanks on the Quays

This won’t win any awards for beauty but it’s part of the old industry of the city along the docklands. While this old building looms overhead lots of people were enjoying a warm June day at the Marina Market. Open air seating was all full with people enjoying their lunches.

I have no doubt these buildings will be gone in a few years, hopefully to be replaced by a thriving community of businesses and homes.

Mullinhassig Waterfall in the Winter

Mullinhassig Waterfall in the Winter

We went for a walk to the waterfall at Mullinhassig yesterday. Not many people there but the ground was littered in Autumn leaves and the thunder of the waterfall was louder by far than what I was used to in the Summer months.

A lovely place to visit, whatever the time of year.

Lights on the Lee

Lights on the Lee

Lights shine on the River Lee from the new office buildings along the quays. One lone light from a boat on the river makes itself known, not to be outdone by it’s land based cousins.

To Albert Rd or Montenotte View?

To Albert Rd or Montenotte View?

Albert Road on the right, Montenotte View on the left. Take one road and go.

I used to take the bus into town for many years going to school. That went to the left. Traffic used to go both ways on Albert Road a long time ago. The day it changed to one way my mother drove up the wrong way after collecting us from school. She didn’t go too far before other motorists let her know the error of her ways!

Blue Cork

Blue Cork

Looking across the River Lee towards the Crawford College Of Art And Design next to Nano Nagle Bridge.

This was back in August 2019 when construction of the Event Center hadn’t eve.. oh wait, it still hasn’t started, but at least the red brick student accommodation on South Main Street was built.

Up until about an hour ago this has sat in my “to be published” collection as a black and white image but then I switched to colour, played around with it a little more and I prefer this.
