Mustang

Classic cars all parked up at Charles Fort near Kinsale, Co Cork and I had a ball shooting them. This beautiful blue Mustang was the first to go. The iconic name and good looks attracted quite a few onlookers.

Clancy’s Youghal

Clancy’s Bar and Restaurant in Youghal has apparently been closed for quite some time. I never knew the place but my wife was surprised and disappointed to see the For Sale signs outside.

I didn’t even notice the people walking along the road until I looked at the photo on my monitor!

Toilets for the Aliens

Toilets for the Aliens

If aliens from outer space attack Youghal in Co Cork we know at least one building they won’t destroy. Odd looking characters featured on this sign for the public toilets near the beach.

Timoleague Abbey and Graveyard

Timoleague Abbey and graveyard

Timoleague Abbey, in the town of the same name in Co Cork is an impressive building from the road. I must have driven (or been driven by my parents) past there hundreds of times over the years from childhood on but I don’t think I explored the Abbey ruins until about 3 or 4 years ago.

This is the graveyard surrounding the ruins, on a beautiful April afternoon last week. More on the Abbey here:

Timoleague abbey was founded by the franciscan order in 1240 A.D. The abbey was built on the site of a monastic settlement founded by Saint Molaga in the 6th century. The villages name comes from the Irish for House of Molaga, Tigh Mologa.The abbey was extended by Donal Glas McCarthy in 1312, and by Irish and Norman patrons in the 16th century. The monks were dispersed by the Reformation, but returned in 1604. In 1612 the abbey was sacked by English soldiers who also smashed all of the stained glass windows, but much of the significant architecture remains. The friars remained in the abbey until 1629.
