River Nore, Kilkenny

River Nore, Kilkenny

The River Nore runs through the city of Kilkenny where we spent a weekend earlier this month at WordCamp Ireland. In the photo you can see the Rivercourt Hotel where I stayed with my family on the opposite bank the famous Kilkenny Castle.

Beautiful city, well worth a visit.

Páirc Uí Chaoimh

Pairc Ui Chaoimh

Páirc UĂ­ Chaoimh in Blackrock, Cork. It’s named after Pádraig Ă“ Caoimh (no relation), “a native of Roscommon, this War of Independence veteran became secretary of the Cork County Board at 21, and he began a 35-year stint as General-Secretary of the GAA barely a decade later”(ref)

Michael Jackson and U2 have both played here in the distant past.

Shot from the roof of the Montenotte Hotel during our last photowalk. You can also see the Marina, the River Lee and Lough Mahon in the distance.

Rain on the River

Rain on the River

Rain falls on a river in a town in County Clare while we were stuck in a traffic jam. I used to know what town this was taken in but now it’s a mystery. It did have a very distinctive walled off area right in the middle of the river though. Anyone recognise it?

Cork City Hall

Cork City Hall

Cork City Hall, on the banks of the River Lee. Shot on the same night as yesterday’s shot of Gardner House. Also not the first time I’ve posted a photo of City Hall!

Only 9 places left for the photowalk. Unfortunately the weather forecast for Saturday is bad so umbrellas and raincoats are a must. I’ll be emailing everyone tomorrow too. Watch your inbox!
