Low Fat = Low Flavor

Middle East War Protest

On Saturday afternoon, Cork Alliance Against War held a protest against the war in Lebanon.

After reading this story about the Kudsi family I have a lot more sympathy for them. Their house was bombed early one morning and most of the household was wiped out.
“In the early hours of the next morning, as Rayan, 30, slept near her daughters Alice, 6, and Celine, 3, an Israeli warplane dropped two one-ton bombs on their house in Hoshe, a village south of Tyre.

Rayan, her girls and her 78-year-old grandmother Um Zuheir were killed, probably when the first bomb struck the villa’s concrete roof just after 4.30am. The family’s tenants, a United Nations official from Ghana and his wife, also died.”

Branedy says it better than I could. Israel really has lost the war.

Skibbereen or Hospital

A sign in the foreground of the main square in Bantry, Co. Cork. We went to Ahakista eventually!

This is made from one exposure but I had this great looking sky and underexposed buildings and ground detail. To get an even exposure I split the photo using two layers and adjusted the exposure in each accordingly. I’m very happy with my work on this one!

1858 FC

A small sign near Hibernian Buildings in Cork. This is in fact on the other side of this wall.

Inchadoney Deliveries

A simple street sign outside the hotel at Inchadoney Beach.

Tithe Eireannacha

Nestled in between the city centre of Cork and Blackrock lies an old and historic part of Cork City. Albert Road and Hibernian Buildings are only two streets in this area and should be familiar to anyone on the south side of the city.

Welcome everyone from and! Can someone translate what they said about my blog there and leave it as a comment on this post please? 160 hits from those sites this morning already so I’m hoping it was complementary!

Your vehicle has been clamped

This is the sign that drivers hate to see. Clampers are a relatively new phenomenon in Ireland but are reviled even more than traffic wardens now.

Picadilly Lane

Cork has it’s own Picadilly, Picadilly Lane leads off North Main Street and is situated next to the butchers I featured previously.
A quick search of Google didn’t find anything about it but hopefully someone will stumble across this post and add whatever knowledge they have about this small lane.
