The red cobbles

The red cobbles

The new Shaky Bridge (Shakey Bridge?), or Daly’s Bridge, is a huge improvement over the old. The lighting makes it stand out, and it still has the shakes like the old one!

I love the cobbles on the ground nearby but the ugly concrete support under the walkway up to it leaves something to be desired. 🙁

Michael Mansfield of Ardmore, Co Waterford

Many years ago I published a few photos of Ardmore in Co Waterford. The post received a number of comments about one particular photo of a gentleman on a motorbike. His name was Michael Mansfield and unfortunately he passed away in 2009 but that hasn’t stopped the occasional visitor from leaving a comment since then, the most recent being yesterday.

That comment prompted me to look up the photos I made that day in 2005 to find more photos of Michael Mansfield. Here are the three I found, including the one that appeared in the original post.

Reading the comments I wish I had stopped to talk to Michael. He seems to have been quite the character around Ardmore!
