Half Moon Glass

Half Moon Glass

The development of Half Moon Street and the adjoining Quay are coming along nicely, even with the old house in the middle of it that must have been kept for historical reasons.

The other side of the building was pictured previously on Reflection on Half Moon Street.

Photowalk is next Saturday! Make sure you sign up if you’re coming!

Cork rooftops on and on

Cork rooftops on and on

The view from the Grand Parade Car Park is a wonderful one in every direction. Rooftops and the architectural sites of the city can all be seen from there. In this view you can only see the rooftops of the city’s shops and old buildings but in the middle distance is the construction work on the block by Emmett Place (featured a few days ago).

Dunnes Stores, Patrick Street

Dunnes Stores, Patrick Street

Dunnes Stores on Patrick Street Cork opened again last Thursday. This is the store pictured at the end of August when a timer counted down the days to opening.

‘Course, every time I think of this store, I think of the super hero who posed outside it hawking leaflets a few years ago!

The French Armada Anchor in Bantry

French Armada Anchor

An anchor sits in the main square in Bantry Town.

According to the Wikipedia page on the town,

This anchor from the French Armada force in 1796 was discovered off the northeast point of Whiddy island, Bantry Bay, in 1980 by the Dutch salvage company Smit Tak

Couldn’t find much else about it online after a brief search. Odd.
