A camera shop on the main street in Ennis, County Clare proudly boasts it sell Polaroid products. I wanted to go in but the time just wasn’t right. Love all the red in this image.

This is about as close as you’ll see me get to film on this blog! 🙂

Step into An Siopa Beag on Oilean Chleire and you’ll see a small restaurant as well as confectionery and a till at the entrance. There are tables outside too of course, I posted a photo of them a while back. It’s one of the first businesses visitors to Cape Clear see, good location!

Angela’s Shop in Fountainstown

Angela's Shop, Fountainstown

Angela’s Shop and Coffee Dock in Fountainstown Co Cork. This shop has been at the beach in Fountainstown for the last 20 years (according to the owner) but I had never ventured inside until today. We were served lovely cups of tea which we enjoyed outside in the blazing sun.

I had hoped to shoot the women’s mini marathon earlier in the day but we had a busy morning with the baby and weren’t ready to leave the house until 1pm. Sorry Ciara, would love to have seen you and the girls in wedding dresses!

Colourful red and white flowers in the doorway of Supervalu in Blarney. I half thought about posting Damien’s picture from yesterday’s get together, especially after what lexia said but that’d be too cruel!

The shop is closed Today

A corner shop in the English Market has a simple but effective way of shutting up shop for the day. Put a broom stick across the entrance!

The English Market is completely roofed over and locked tight at night so I guess traders feel reasonably safe with minimal security precautions. That’s what’s wonderful about the market. It’s in the centre of Cork City yet it feels like an entirely different place, like a village market with stalls.

Definitely worth a visit if you’re a tourist in Cork.

The English Market Olive Stall

The olive stall in the English Market, Cork is a well known part of this indoor market. There is always a queue of people waiting to bu some of their delicious produce.

If you like the olives you get in jars, try some fresh ones. You’ll be blown away by the flavour!

How to send flowers to ladies

Obviously the gentlemen of Bantry are a polite and courteous bunch.

While their women folk are in the public loo an enterprising soul will sell them flowers for their better half!
