I have no idea what they were looking at because there wasn’t anything flying overhead. Better than waiting for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade to start I suppose!
Taken on Paddy’s Day this year on Patrick’s Street, or Panna as it’s locally known.
Clouds in the sky reflect off the water of the pond in Fitzgerald’s Park in Cork.
Imagine the scene. Out on a pier, I’m lying on the wooden beams over the low tide surf on the rocks below and I’m calling to my dog. Thankfully Oscar obliged and I made this photo as he walked towards me with his tongue half-hanging out of his mouth. There’s Jacinta in the background, she’s almost 9 months pregnant in this photo, but you probably can’t see the bump in this small image!
Will the construction work in Cork ever end? They just finished digging up the end of Washington Street and Grande Parade when they dig up that busy corner again.
Not quite as bad as the ESB or Bord Gais running a trench through brand new tarmac and leaving a broken road surface behind.
This shot is from the Grand Parade where brickwork is being laid into the ground around the original fountain that was recently restored there. Pics of that to follow!
Thomas, a young boy in his buggy on Patrick’s Day this year. He’s well wrapped up against the cold.
I have no idea who he is, so hopefully his name is Thomas, and that’s not some famous brand I’m not aware of.
This group of lads wandered into the old switching station on Caroline Street during the filming of Stanley Super 800’s video so I took their photo.
Apparently they are a German Deep Purple cover band but it was hard to figure out what their name was because they hardly spoke a word of English and my German is non-existant! They were playing in the Old Oak that night so chances are they’ll be back!
The guy in the back is in the Stanley Super 800 video. Look out for the bouncers, he’s one of them. I can’t remember his name, but I had a great chat with him during the filming.
Some of the crowd who gathered for the filming of the video accompanying "Gate Crashing", Stanley Super 800’s latest single.
You wouldn’t believe how mad this lot were!
You can see the video on my my blog.
This little girl was playing in the sand on the beach as we walked past. Plenty of toys about, but I don’t think she had built a sand castle yet. It’s lovely to see children playing in the sand. It’s an age of innocence and (sometimes) simple joy that we forget as adults.
A few weeks before Adam was born we went down to Garrettstown Beach in Co. Cork. The sun was shining, it was warm and the beach had a good number of people on it. Beautiful day!
