Flash Harry at the Cork Opera House

A much delayed concert by Queen tribute band, Flash Harry, in Cork went ahead tonight in Cork Opera House and it was worth the wait. The band were great and had everyone dancing around by the end of the night!

Mask wearing by the audience started out well but by the interval hardly anyone I saw was wearing one. I guess that probably happens at every venue. People are sick of restrictions, but the pandemic isn’t over yet. While the auditorium appeared quite full our row of seats was mostly empty, and the rows ahead of us were packed. So I’d believe they’re limiting attendance to 60% of capacity. Things go back to normal on October 22nd.

As I’ve said before, if Flash Harry are playing near you go check them out!

Gougane Barra at Sunrise

Gougane Barra at Sunrise

Gougane Barra, where the River Lee rises and the location of a monastery Saint Finbarr built in the 6th century. A modern chapel, called St Finbarr’s Oratory dates back to 1903.

The image above is a HDR panorama of 9 photos merged together in Lightroom and is a result of a very early visit with Blarney Photography Club this morning. The spectacular light was totally worth getting up at 5am for!
