BOZO

BOZO

This wall on Hibernian Road in Cork has always been covered in graffiti but if you look at it in Google Street View and go back through the years it has been cleaned several times by Cork Corporation. You can go all the way back to 2009 and see the state of the wall back then. The newest Street View is from July 2022, and you can see BOZO immortalised there.

This is only the latest iteration.

Belem and Grace O’Malley in Cork

Belem and Grace O'Malley in Cork

Belem, a French tall ship, was docked in Cork Harbour until 10am this morning. There was a mostly disappointing sunset last night, but the sky did light up briefly just at the horizon.

The masts and rigging of the Grace O’Malley, the new sail training ship can be seen in the background. It was a lovely evening to be out taking photos.

This large wall in Bishop Lucey Park has featured a huge mural on it for several years now. This is the wall as it was in June 2021, but the mural has been changed since then.

The Jellyfish at Blarney Castle

Over the next few days in Blarney Castle there’s a new pop-up garden to visit inside the walls of the building. In it, you’ll find an aquarium that is home to a group of moon jellyfish surrounded by specially selected plants and beautiful art work. The Irish Examiner has published an article on it this morning with lots more detail.

Flowers and Aquaduct in Ballydehob

Flowers and Aquaduct in Ballydehob

On a beautiful October afternoon in Ballydehob and the last thing I needed to worry about was swans, unlike an unfortunate day in 2004 when they didn’t like me taking their photos.
