Blackrock Farmer’s Market

Last weekend we went down to Blackrock Village, Cork to visit the farmer’s market and go for a walk along the Marina. It was our first time there in quite a while and it was a lovely surprise to see my cousin’s wife Louise at one of the stalls. She sells beautiful jewelery so if you ever see any of the pieces above it’s Louise behind the stall, make sure to say hi from me! Nice rounded frames in the photo above by Gingerpixel! Thank you!

La Fheile Phadraig i gCorcaigh

‘Se seo Lá Fhéile Phadraig inniu. Chuaigh me isteach sa chathair (gan an chlann) chun féachaint ar an paráid ach ni fhacha me moran de. Bhi an meid sin daoine ann. Ni raibh paisti in ann aon rud a fheisceant in aon chor. Bhi sé nios éasca agus bhain me nios mo taineamh as pictuiri a thogaint den lucht féachanta! D’fhagas 50 noiméad tar éis do tosnu. Bhi my lamha tuirseach o beith ag chuir my camara os mo ceann agus chonaic me nios mo den paraid sa bhaile anseo ar an riomhaire… Ta suas le 300 griangraf togtha agam inniu ach nil an t-am agam obair ortha anocht.

Daffodils in the Snow

Daffodils struggle against the cold and snow in Blarney this morning. Many parts of the country were covered in a white blanket. Snow is still falling. My son loves it of course. We spent 10 minutes in the back garden throwing snow around and I got some great photos! If you’re in Dublin on St. Patrick’s Day this year make sure you upload your photos to the Pix.ie Festival Group. Pix.ie have got together with St. Patrick’s Festival to give bloggers a chance to get into good positions to shoot the Dublin Parade. I’ll be in Cork that day and I’ll be shooting the Parade here. I wonder if the… Read More
