Bertie’s going overboard today, hopefully. As I write this Bertie Ahern is speaking and it sounds like a resignation speech. I haven’t heard an apology for lying under oath and deceiving the public yet however.
Unfortunately we’re all going to forget this by the next election. Hopefully the other parties will make hay while the sun shines.
Posting this today as Miriam’s photo of the same sign reminded me I had shot this at Allihies Beach in Co. Cork.
It’s appropriate too.
Edit – he’s out. Bertie Ahern will resign on May 6th 2008.
One of the many trees growing in the arid desert surrounding the ranch Automattic stayed in while in Arizona.

We walked around The Lough and wandered over to the daffodils growing by the footpath at one of the lake. That’s Sean Murphy in the background as he preps some of his equipment to take a shot.
Probably my last photo from the Lough Photowalk!
Swans swim past on The Lough in Cork City. This was one of the first photos I took at the recent photowalk there. Despite the clear blue sky and lovely light it was quite cold with a biting wind!
Some of the swans at the Lough a few weeks ago during the photo walk. Got a few more shots from that session to post!

You can read more about the church and mass times at the The Lough Parish page on the Diocese website.
This was shot from a precarious position. I jumped up on one of the concrete posts dotted around the pond and very carefully snapped a couple of shots. I just about managed to balance there for a few minutes! See the two black swans everyone else was shooting?
From left to right: Donal, Ryan, Kevin, Katie and Sean spotted me and started shooting the biggest birdbrain there ..
Besides the beautiful swans, there’s the usual gathering of pigeons waddling along on the path picking up bread crumbs.
Too tempting. I had to chase after them and encourage them to fly a little. Some of them need the exercise!
