A girl on the phone in Dawnt Square Cork, dressed in the height of youth fashion: the obligatory tracksuit!
It was Bonfire Night in Cork yesterday. It’s celebrated on St. John’s Eve and there have been bonfires lit in Cork for as long as I remember. Not all parts of the country celebrate the night, and I heard on the radio 2 days ago that there may be a by-law passed in Cork banning the lighting of bonfires that night because of the danger to people, property and the fire services.
Unfortunately each year the fire services are attacked with rocks and other weapons when they go to certain areas of the city.
The construction site that is the Grand Parade right now but it will soon look like Patrick’s Street with broad pavements, paving and those flag bearing poles that are so prominent on our main thoroughfare.
No Fred photos today, I haven’t had time to work on any. Expect more next week!
A long exposure shot in Luigi Malones Restaurant in Cork catches some of the hectic activity during lunch hour.

We bought 2 hot dogs here and enjoyed them in the Peace Park where..
It wasn’t exactly cold, or warm either but this gentleman must have been more than a little warm wearing a big jumper like that!
A street entertainer finishes off his lunch during World Book Day in Cork a few weeks back. Wait until you see what he was looking at!
A craft fair was recently held in the Unitarian Church on Prince’s Street. I have been dying to get into the building and see what it’s like on the inside for ages so we jumped at the chance. We like visiting these fairs too so it was doubly good.
This rather tall and cheerful man was advertising the fair on St. Patrick’s Street!
