Please keep your distance

Covid-19 precautions in a Dunnes Stores at the cash registers. Dealing with us, the public, is hard enough in normal times. In Covid times it must be absolutely awful.

Fog in the Light

Fog in the Light

A street light shines through the fog on a gloomy night recently. Many parts of the country had fog warnings but for someone on foot it lent a mysterious feel to ordinary scenes.

The colours of Autumn

The colours of Autumn

As we head into what is often described as a dreary month, especially after the festivities in December, here’s a reminder of the glorious Autumn colours last year. Spring won’t be long now!

The Barren Gap of Dunloe

The Barren Gap of Dunloe

The Gap of Dunloe in Co Kerry in February 2007. I was up there recently and it couldn’t have been more different. A storm blew down the valley making life miserable for anyone walking the roads or trying to take photos of this scenic area.

I’m a SHOW boy

I'm a SHOW boy

April 2006 and the Grand Parade was the scene of some merriment. Food and produce stalls were erected and entertainers entertained.

Note that they’re standing on the road? Now they’d be on the large pavement on the library side of the road!

Long Gone in Cork

Long Gone in Cork

Way back in 2005 before the Elysian was built. Look at all the buildings that are gone now:

  1. The warehouses in the foreground are gone.
  2. The Sextant was demolished last year.
  3. Cork Bonded Warehouses are gone a long time.
  4. In the far background many new buildings have gone up.

This view from the City Hall car park is no longer possible of course because the Elysian and new development along Alert Quay gets in the way. The new development is welcome but building more and more offices and hotels is a mistake. We need more residential development.

Rukos Skateboard Air Time

Catching the air on a Rukos skateboard in Emmett Place, Cork. September 2005.

I published a few more photos here a couple of years ago. You’ll recognise the skateboarder in one or two of the images!

The Ruins of Lebowskis

The Ruins of Lebowskis
The Ruins of Lebowskis

Lebowskis on Marlboro Street in 2005. The Spyglass Tavern is now in this building I think if Google Maps is up to date. I wasn’t ever in Lebowskis and haven’t visited the Spyglass Tavern either.

Edit: The Atlas Bar is in that building now, not the Spyglass Tavern.

A Statue in the Octagonal Court

A Statue in the Octagonal Court

A statue in the Octagonal Court in the Vatican remains nameless despite my best efforts. It stands to the side of the Laoco├Ân and I even found it on Google Maps but the pedestal is stands on doesn’t have an inscription!
