Q Here

I’m going to Dublin on Wednesday and wanted to buy my train tickets in plenty of time. Here’s a shot of the queue outside the ticket office in Kent Railway Station, Cork.
Tickets are expensive at 56 Euro for a return ticket to Dublin. A 160 mile journey that takes almost 3 hours!

Waltzers in Crosshaven!

If a Cork person tells you they’re going to the Merries, don’t look at them strangely. They want to go to the funfair!
The Merries in Crosshaven have been there for years, and last September myself and Jacinta went on the Waltzers. It was a slow day, and early in the evening so we were the only occupants and I’d swear the attendent made it go a lot faster than normal!
It was fun for the first minute, but after that my neck got sore, and I just wanted off! We stumbled off shortly afterwards while the attendent sat down for a smoke..

Wonderful Colour

It’s horrible outside. It’s cold, snow and sleet are falling and the sun hardly warms the air. This reminds me of how nice it was only a few weeks ago. We’re in for a cold weekend!

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.
