Hazel O’Connor live in An Cruiscin Lan, Cork

Hazel O’Connor performed in An Cruiscin Lan last night. She has a great voice, and her songs are very emotionally charged and from the heart.
I loved how she told a short story about each song. It really brought it home how her mind works.

Running Through Rain

We were sitting in the car waiting to pick up someone off the bus when it started raining. Suddenly, this girl ran flying past with a big gleeful smile on her face! Unfortunately, she turned her head to look back at her parents just as she passed!

Eating or Politics?

Sometimes it’s the little things in life that concern us more than the big picture.

I’m sure I heard about Sean Garland on the news but for the life of me, I can’t remember when. There’s a lot more information on him on seangarland.org and Wikipedia.

Faces in the crowd

This is not just a trick of the zoom lens. The crowds in town on Saturday were like those around Christmas. Christmas lights are already up, but not lit, and there was an urgent air about the place.
This is the second shot of this scene and it turned out much better because of the human touch – the faces in the crowd.

Remembering Cork

The corner of Patrick’s Quay and Patrick’s Bridge in the 1930s and 2005. I barely remember Merchants Quay as a street lined with old 3 storey houses before the large shopping complex was built there and opened in 1989.
