Morning Walks around Blarney

Covid-19 Lockdown began again in Ireland for six weeks until December 1st. Hopefully people don’t go crazy drinking and partying in December thinking the Coronavirus is gone, but of course they will. Bet we’ll have another lockdown in January.

We’re restricted to exercising within 5km of our homes now, which is ridiculous when you live in a village but obviously makes sense if you live in a build up urban area. I get out for a quick walk most mornings around Blarney and the sun rising is always a nice experience.


The Mill built an outside dining area for customers and even had nice fake trees with these flowers dotted around the area. When lockdown was announced they pull down part of it, including these trees. Hopefully they’ll be back in December.


The leaves of trees in the carpark of the Woollen Mills in Blarney as the sun rose.


Waterloo Joinery and other signs point the way up Waterloo Road.

Going for a cup of cha?

cup of cha?

You might go to this cafe in Porto, Portugal for a cup of tea. I always thought “cup o’ cha” was a Cork or Irish slang expression but a quick Google shows it used in the UK too.
In Portugese the word “chá” means tea so when I saw this cafe that sign was the first thing I noticed!

Maybe I was just thinking of Cha and Miah..
