Clearing The Storm Debris

Clearing The Storm Debris

Back in October 2017, storms blew several trees down on to the Waterloo Road. Within a few hours work crews had started work on clearing the area. Oddly enough they waited to do the major work until Eoghan Murphy, a minister in the government, arrived to observe.

It was enlightening to see them start working on the wood chipper and start up their machinery when they received news that Mr Murphy was nearby. I guess that’s how politics works. They have to be “seen” to be doing something.

Picking up the pieces on St. Patrick’s Day

Picking up the pieces on Patrick's Day

Workers collecting the fencing after the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Cork in 2004.

Notice the lack of clear lines on the road surface of the South Mall, and the boarded up construction site in the background. The buildings might look much the same, but the roads are clearly marked out now.

Michael O’Regan in Yellow

Michael O’Regan in Yellow

Michael O’Regan has been selling the Echo newspaper in this spot on Patrick Street, Cork since 1969. He was a familiar sight to generations of Cork people.

I haven’t seen him in a long time, and this photo was taken in 2006. The latest information I can find on him is a photo taken of him in January 2020 when he met the Lord Mayor of Cork, John Sheehan.
