Cork 2005

Cork 2005

Older visitors will recognise this poster if they were around Cork in 2005 when the city was “European Capital of Culture”.

This poster was draped over the city library, and I was very lucky to capture a tour bus as it drove past on a fine June day, exactly 17 years ago today.

Queue for the bus on St. Patrick’s Quay

Queue for the bus on St. Patrick's Quay

The bus stops on St. Patrick’s Quay are being moved to various locations around the city disrupting the future travel arrangements of people who use them.

You used to be able to get a bus from west Cork to the city, walk to the next bus stop and hop on a bus to Dublin but now they’ll be in separate parts of the city.

Not exactly encouraging for people with mobility issues.

The fugitive can’t run fast enough!

The 96fm fugitive

The 96FM Fugitive is a character listeners of Cork radio station 96FM watch out for as DJs on the radio station give out clues as to his whereabouts. Find him and you’ll win a cash prize!

A few weeks ago they told people he was in Blarney and I was asked at least three times if I was the fugitive. OK, I hadn’t shaved that morning yet but did I really look that suspicious?

An Bhlarna

The sign points the way to Blarney or Blarna in Irish. If you’re interested, that’s pronounced “blawrnah”

“Secrets”, an adult store, occupies the building at the centre of this photo.

The 8A Bus

The 8A Bus

A man gets on the 8A bus to Curraheen on Patrick Street, Cork last Saturday.

This was on the way to the photowalk, walking up the street with Chris to where Will had double parked because he was driving home again. Chris had dropped his camera in the car when he got out!

Red and White and Cork All Over

Young Cork supporters take the tour bus around the city a few weeks ago. Cork plays Kerry isn’t it today in a replay? Yes, I’m a big sports fan, honest.

Fancy ass public transport

fancy ass public transport

OK, so it’s not quite a bus, but it’s a stretch limo. I saw it again today cruising up and down Patrick’s Street with the rear window open a crack. I’d hate to see that try to navigate a tight bend!

The hippiest bus

A strange multi-coloured bus waiting at the lights in downtown San Francisco last summer.

Yes, those are horns on the roof. Does anyone know anything about it? A search for “EFT 922”, it’s registration plate, turns up nothing useful.
