Cars dumped in a field

Cars dumped in a field

Near the Inniscarra Dam on the River Lee I went walking one afternoon in March 2005. Apart from the gorgeous scenery and the rolling hills and lovely fluffy clouds of a bright day I spotted two cars dumped in a field.

The Ford Escort license plate was “70 NZB” but I couldn’t see the other car’s plate. I presume they’re long gone now.

If they were dumped nowadays they’d probably sell for more second hand than new…

A Pink Cadillac in Blarney

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! The owner of this pink Cadillac took part in the Blarney parade in 2016!

No parade this year. The village was very quiet this evening when I went for a walk there.

The Bandon Road Roundabout, pre-flyover

The Bandon Road Roundabout

The flyover over the Bandon Road Roundabout in Bishopstown is completed (or so I’ve read, I haven’t driven over it yet) but here’s what it looked like 2006, well before any work was done. The pedestrian walkway I took this from is long gone and the area itself looks a lot different now!

Now, all we need is a north-south road with a 100kph speed limit and we’re all sorted.

Further info on boards.ie and Evening Echo and here too.

WEDNESDAY, JULY 24, 2013
A NEW era of motoring in Cork dawned today as the city’s new 60 million twin flyovers opened to traffic on the South Ring Road.
Traffic travelling both east and west on the N25 were directed on to the new flyovers at the Sarsfield Road and Bandon Road roundabouts from 6am this morning.
Up to 60,000 vehicles every day will now be taken off the two roundabouts, vastly reducing traffic congestion in the Bishopstown and Wilton areas.
Travel times are also expected to be cut by up to 30 minutes at peak traffic periods with the opening of the flyovers which took two years to complete.

Derelict Reykjavik Highrises

What I’ve seen of Reykjavik so far has been really nice. Buildings are colourful, the streets are for the most part well maintained and the city centre has cobbled streets so it’s pleasant to walk around.

While on our photowalk today we passed these buildings on the sea front. I thought they were just another apartment building until I noticed that the balconies were fenced in by planks of wood held together loosely!

A Morris Minor, registered in 1964, parked in Bantry town in County Cork. Pictured in September 2008 while on holiday there.

After reading the Wikipedia page on the car this is probably a Minor 1000.
