We Love WordPress

Imagine my surprise when we stumbled upon the above scrawled on the sand at Inchadoney. I had nothing to do with it, honest! 😉

Jacinta and I drove down to Clonakilty yesterday evening where we enjoyed a lovely meal in the Cobra Indian Restaurant. Then it was on to Inchadoney beach to enjoy a walk before the sun set.
I just had to write “WE LOVE WORDPRESS” in the sand after seeing a message about bebo nearby. Thanks Jacinta for the idea!

Helping Hand

I always think twice about photographing homeless people, but this time I was moved by the simple act of sharing a cigarette.

Picadilly Lane

Cork has it’s own Picadilly, Picadilly Lane leads off North Main Street and is situated next to the butchers I featured previously.
A quick search of Google didn’t find anything about it but hopefully someone will stumble across this post and add whatever knowledge they have about this small lane.

Red Dragon

A Welsh flag pictured inside a window. This is just down the road from St. Fin Barre’s Cathedral in Cork and is probably student accommodation because it’s close to UCC too.

Abandoned Train Station

In Killeagh, East Cork, there’s an abandoned train station from I don’t know how long ago. According to Wikidepia it’s unlikely that the station will be restored because there isn’t enough demand. The Cork-Midleton line will however open by 2008.
While researching this post I found out that the town of Killeagh was an important place in the Fenian Rising of 1867!

The changing face of Cork City

O’Flynn Butchers used to operate from this shop until very recently. With the influx of immigrants into Ireland, North Main Street has become a lot more interesting with shops dedicated to the cuisine of other cultures!

Little Bunny

Each Spring for the past two years wild rabbits visit our garden at home. They’re really cute, and thankfully I don’t have any flowers or veg to tempt them!
