Boys in the park

Boys in the park

Boys in Fitzgerald’s Park sort of enjoying the Lord Mayor’s Picnic a few weeks ago. I saw “sort of” because of their tense expressions. Must have been the crowds!

Rainbow Umbrella

Rainbow Umbrella

A child opens a rainbow coloured umbrella outside Cork City Library last Saturday. Rain threatened most of the day so it was a good idea to have an umbrella with you, just in case.

Phil is blogging the photos he took, and posted about his trip to Cork too.

A brass band played in front of Cork City Library today and I made this shot while waiting with Phil and his brother Christopher for Damien to appear.

We didn’t make it to Robodock in the end. I was busy and exhausted with a sick baby all morning and I think I’m lucky I managed to get into town at all! Nice to meet up with everyone, including Donal later on in The Newport.

Baby Adam is feeling much better after a lot of care and nursing. Doctor says he’ll be right as rain (and we get enough of that these days!) by Monday. Phew. Poor fella is really suffering.

Relaxing by the pond

Relaxing by the pond

Lots of people relaxing by the pond in Fitzgerald’s Park during the Lord Mayor’s Picnic a few weeks back. We were busily walking past with a slightly tired baby. Don’t do much relaxing these days..

The Gentleman Clown

The Gentleman Clown

Yes, yes, we’re clowning around! Here’s the tall gent from the Circo Copa demonstration in Fitzgerald’s Park a while back. I wonder if he’ll ever see this. The put on a great show that day!

Thanks for all the nice comments on yesterday’s post about Michelle. They’re very much appreciated.

I am the winner!

I am the winner!

More shots of members of Circo Copa who entertained the crowds at Fitzgerald’s Park on Sunday last. The man with the duster chased the female member of the group around, tickling her and was then declared the winner in some obscure but funny competition.

If Adam was a few years older I’d bring him to see them perform in the Spiegeltent.

The Lord Mayor’s Picnic, Cork 2008

Fitzgerald’s Park was packed yesterday for The Lord Mayor’s Picnic. I hope the following photos give you a flavour of the mayhem! I don’t think I’ve ever seen as many people in the Park!
