On the way into Cork Airport I snapped this shot of the beautiful green fields of Co. Cork.
After the desert landscape of Arizona it was a relief to see familiar countryside again.
The Irish flag flies outside Horgans of Blarney, a souvenir shop in the village.
Despite the fact that it’s between the butcher’s and a pub, I’ve never been in there. I doubt most locals have been.
Still, nice to see the flags waving!
Sunset over Garrettstown Beach.
PS. spammers are using the inphotos.org domain to send spam again which is why this site was down for most of the day. You should see the incoming traffic graph because of all the bounced messages. I have now shut down Postfix, and redirecting email to through my domain registrar, Joker.com who hopefully can handle the load better. Email to firstname.lastname@example.org may not reach me for several hours however.
Chains line the road outside the entrance to the private manor next to Blarney Castle.
The steeple of St. Anne’s Church, or “Shandon Bells” as viewed from near the Opera House in Cork. Traffic is as usual stuck at the lights close by ..
This is the centre of Blarney village. It’s a lovely large green, enclosed on all sides by walls and with gates on the north and south sides.
Just goes to show, it’s not always raining in Ireland!
A small girl sits on (I presume) her dad’s shoulders on Patrick’s Street. In the background is the Savoy Shopping Center, and of course the building side behind Dunnes is clearly visible in the scaffolding supports to the far left.
Cables from a crane on the construction site at the old Guy & Company building in Cork.
Traffic stops at the lights by the building site of the Elysian. I passed by the other side of it, past the low rise section of the building and it towers over the street.
