Cork Film Festival starts on the 14th of October this year and will run until the 21st.
They’ve obviously spent quite a bit on advertising as these banners are visible all the way up Patrick Street.
Still, I’ve never been to a film during the festival. Others take time off work and sit in darkened theatres for the duration of the festival soaking up the celluloid culture.
This man has been selling the Evening Echo on Cork’s Patrick’s Street for years. Here’s a photo of him back in August 2005!

An ESB van passes a pole with a Rossport Shell-to-sea campaign flyer on it.
Shell want to bring oil to land at Rossport in Co. Mayo, and the ESB are massive consumers of oil, gas and coal in their electricity generation business.

In the background is the old Dunnes Stores which has been pulled down leaving the front facing of the building and a wide swath of destruction and deconstruction behind it extending to Emmet Place.

I have no idea what they were looking at because there wasn’t anything flying overhead. Better than waiting for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade to start I suppose!

It’s a bike on the ground, why are you photographing it? That’s what a group of girls asked me as I crouched down next to this bike. I got the shot though!
