Clannad 50th Anniversary Farewell Tour in Cork

Clannad, the Irish band that is this year celebrating 50 years together began the year with a Farewell Tour. They played in the Opera House in Cork in early March when I saw them and they were great. I didn’t know much of their music beyond the obvious themes to Robin Hood or the Harry’s Game but I’m a fan since!

Hopefully they will be able to continue their tour but as of now, from a snapshot of their site from March 28th they have rescheduled shows up to the end of May. I’d say it’s likely they’ll have to postpone even more of those shows unfortunately.

The MacCurtain St Construction Site

MacCurtain St Construction Site

If you’ve driven along MacCurtain Street lately you’ll have noticed a few lanes are blocked and York Hill is completely closed. A 73-bed “micro-sleeper hotel” is going in there which I presume means rooms will be a little bigger than the capsule hotels in Japan..

Flash Harry at the Opera House

This was my fourth time seeing Flash Harry perform, and third time in the Cork Opera House and they brought the house down as they always do. The first half was sedate with a good mix of well known and more obscure Queen songs. I loved their rendition of ’39. After a brief interlude where we were told cups of tea were consumed, and not some illicit drug the band took it up a notch with great versions of Bohemian Rhapsody, Radio Gaga, I Want to Break Free and many other hits!

The band are touring Ireland this year with lots of gigs announced. If they play near you go see them! You’re guaranteed a great night!

For more, check out my Flash Harry archive of photos.

For the photographers in the audience. All the photos were shot with a Sony A7III, and and adapted Tamron 28-300 “super zoom” which unfortunately doesn’t focus that well. As a result I used back-button-focus since the performers were mostly standing in the same general area, and I wasn’t moving from my seat so it worked well!

The Lights of The Mary Elmes Bridge

The Lights of The Mary Elmes Bridge

The Lights of The Mary Elmes Bridge

Mary Elmes was an an Irish aid worker who saved many Jewish children from being transported to concentration camps during World War II.

In 1942, the Vichy authorities made it clear that Jewish children were not legally allowed to be exempt from being sent to the concentration camps, as they had been. Elmes, with help from some colleagues, rescued dozens of children, taking them to safe houses or helping them flee the country altogether. Well aware that she was putting herself at risk, Elmes hid many children in the boot of her car and drove them to safe destinations. She aided many others by securing documents, which allowed for them to escape through the undercover network in Vichy France.

She was born in Cork in 1908 and today, a new bridge named in her honour was opened officially (backup) by the Lord Mayor of Cork, Cllr John Sheehan.
