The Irish housing market is slowing down but sales are still being made.
A tiny house down the road from this one in Blarney sold a few weeks ago even though I’m sure you could hardly swing a cat in it …
It’s amazing how much this building site has changed in the last few years. This was taken last May. Now if you took this picture much of the sky would be blocked out by the 3 or 4 storey building work on this side of the site.
Chalk graffiti on the temporary hoarding in front of the old Dunnes Stores store on Patrick Street, Cork.
Are you comfortable sir? Please sit down and the lift will descend in a moment.
A chair sits in a service lift on the sidewalk outside my hotel in San Francisco. The chair looked so out of place in the urban environment I had to shoot it!
A look inside the old Christian Brother school on Sullivan’s Quay in Cork.
The place is a mess. Desks and tables thrown about. Computer monitors sit staring into space and a basketball ring attached to the far wall unused for who knows how long.
The old Christian Brother’s school on Sullivan’s Quay was put up for auction and sold recently. It’s in a prime city centre location but is also a very old building.
My brother attended there briefly when the Model School transferred from Anglesea St near the end of it’s life.
Tomorrow, a picture looking in.
Like the stone laid by Barbara Jessie Burton in 1927, this doorway probably goes unnoticed by most people on Prince’s Street. It’s right next to the stone linked above, but the door is usually closed.
I spotted this colourful mosaic out of the corner of my eye and recognised the Burton name from my previous post.
The old Dunnes Stores on Patrick’s Street is now only a shadow of it’s former self. All that remains of the building is the front facade and a small portion of the side walls.
Construction work on the Paul Street development has levelled most of the back buildings in a square block, exposing the internals of other buildings to the elements.
I spotted photos hanging on the rear wall of a room left open to the elements after demolition. Surreal!
If any business person from Acadamy Street is reading this, can I go to the top of your building and shoot the construction site from on-high? Please!
The Shandon bell tower of St. Anne’s Church is one of the most recognisable sights around Cork. Here it is viewed from the end of Academy Street by Patrick’s Street.
