All Dressed up for the Show

A model poses for the camera. She was dressed warmly but I still remember it was a roasting day. How she kept her cool is beyond me! Another shot from the same day is Red Heart.

Blarney Men’s Shed win best St. Patrick’s Day Parade float

Blarney Men's Shed

The Men’s Shed in Blarney constructed this fabulous float for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Blarney yesterday. It was voted the best float of the day by a panel who reviewed the parade.

The cart was made by members of the Shed so, as the announcer in the village said, it may be the newest cart pulled by a horse in the country now.

Ground Level by Bishop Lucey Park

Ground Level by Bishop Lucey Park

The Grand Parade in Cork was quite different 11 years ago. Outside Bishop Lucey Park was an uneven path, the centre of the street was a narrow section between two busy strips of tarmac. And of course the Capitol Cinema was still open. I’m glad the monstrosity pictured here was never built there, even if the site is still dormant. More info on the history of that site available here.

This shot was taken within minutes of this Grand Parade shot I posted last month.

The Peace Park

The Peace Park

Many Cork people think the Peace Park is Bishop Lucey Park on the Grand Parade but it’s actually at the top of South Mall next to the Electric bar. It’s hard to blame them. If you do a search for cork peace park the first link goes to the Wikipedia page for Bishop Lucey park but at least the first paragraph there explains the mistake.

Pictured is the World War I memorial on the site.
