There are I think 3 adult stores in Cork. Two are down by Parnell Place, or at least they were, and the other is pictured above!
One of the adult stores in Cork is down a small, narrow little road called Grafton Street. The alley is so small that it doesn’t even appear on Google Maps. It does show on Yahoo Maps but you’d be forgiven if you never noticed it before.
This was shot from the Grand Parade multi-storey car park which backs onto the road. I was really happy to get the flashing neon sign while it was illuminated!
The Sony repair centre is just across the alley from the store, the only reason I’ve ever gone down there, when I tried to get my Sony 717 repaired.
No, before you ask, I’ve never darkened the doorway of any of those shops!
Oh the relief when the baby falls asleep. Twice the fun when you have two, eh Ryan?
A mother pushes a buggy with her two sons across Patrick Street in Cork while the two lads sleep serenely.
The car in the background is what caught my attention in the first place. Do you recognise it?
An old man stops at the end of Paul Street, Cork. I think he spotted me taking his photo.

Looking out the winder beats trying to navigate all the baby stuff in the shop!
Debenhams bought Irish department store chain, "Roches Stores", back in 2006, and rebranded their Cork store on Patrick Street shortly afterwards.
Unfortunately nobody has yet replaced the big "Roches Stores" logo at the top of the building. It’s still there, more than a year later! 🙂
My brother Cathal leapt into the air to head the ball when Kilkully Decking played Mulligans played at Turners Cross a few weeks ago.
Unfortunately they lost, but it was a great game of football. Cathal played a blinder!
A merry-go-round or whatever you call it kept the kids entertained in the Peace Park last night as Santa visited courtesy of 96FM.
Even the Lord Mayor of Cork turned up. He had no problems finding parking. I saw his car parked up on the broad new pavement outside the park. The “07 C 1” number plate is very distinctive.
The crowd went mad cheering and shouting when filming of Stanley Super 800’s Gatecrashing video finally stopped.
You wouldn’t believe how many takes a music video takes but they were as vibrant and cheerful at the end as at the start! Amazing!
