Kilkenny Alley

One of the well preserved medieval alleyways leading off the main street in Kilkenny.

Another sale

Another sale made at the market during the St Patrick’s Festival in Cork!

A Crowd Pleaser

More mono cycle madness on St. Patrick Street! This is near the end of his act. The crowd really enjoyed his show!

Buy a hot dog

I’d call them hot dogs simply because I’m ignorant of the German name used on the sign outside this stall. Whatever they’re called they were delicious!

All good stuff

Is chocolate bad and contain calories if it’s all organic and good and pure and sold in a homely fashion? Go on, you know you want some!

Fun on a monocycle

A street performer climbs onto his monocycle during the St Patrick’s Festival 2006.
I love the second picture here. It shows just how crazy he was as he got the crowd cheering and enthusing about his act.

Hangers on

Clothes hang unnoticed amid the crowds and stalls down Academy Street Cork during the St Patrick’s Festival on March 18th 2006!

Joe, the Devil and an Angel

Joe was a simple man. He is like most of us haunted by his own devils but also protected by an angel by his side.
In this street drama Joe was continually tempted by the devil, but then he found a small bird lying dead on the ground. What will he do? Leave it there for someone to walk on or a car to roll over or bury it with some dignity?
Thankfully Joe’s Angel gained the upper hand and with some ceremony Joe buried the poor bird in a nearby bin.

The French Soap Seller

One of the stalls at the St. Patrick’s Festival Market sold perfumed soaps and other crafts. This French gentleman owned the stall and cheerfully told us that he’d be travelling the country until his stock ran out, at which point he’d return home and have to do household chores for his wife!
I think he enjoyed life on the road.
