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 ..

The wires that ring Shandon Bells

The wires that ring Shandon Bells

Next time you’re in Cork and you have a spare hour to burn head up to Shandon and into St. Anne’s Church where you can ring the Shandon Bells. They’re heard for quite some distance and any tune can be played. Check out the music in the photo above: “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina”, “Final Countdown” and more!

Hot Tasty Sausages

hot tasty sausages

While out photowalking a hot sausages in a bun with a dab of mustard is just the thing to keep the hunger at bay. I bought the sausage in the bun being prepared above and totally enjoyed it, even if it was €4.

BTW there’s Kevin in the background!

Daffodil, snow and water droplets

Daffodil, snow and water droplets

A lonely daffodil bent down by the cold and snow a week ago in Blarney. Taken very close to the Daffodils in the Snow shot I posted that morning.

Love the tiny water droplets on the stem of the flower. It was a toss up between this image and the one I posted previously for that morning but I really like this shot too so it was tough choosing.
