If you visit Malaga during Easter Week you’ll soon become aware of the many processions that happen in the city. Young and old alike throng the city waiting patiently for processions to pass. They happen in the middle of the day, they happen at night. You can be walking down a road after dinner when you’ll hear drumming or a brass band in the distance and suddenly your way is blocked for the next ten minutes.

It’s amazing to see. Be prepared to take your time and take detours if you visit around Easter. 🙂

A visit to Malaga during Easter Week


This year there was no St. Patrick’s Day parade in Blarney so my son and I went into Cork City to catch the parade there. There was a good turnout, and lots of participants in the parade. Unfortunately I picked a bad place to watch the parade from but later wandered about and found somewhere better. 🙂

Flash Harry played in the Opera House last night to a sold out crowd. They’re a Queen tribute band from Belfast and this is my third time seeing them, and I have to admit, they’re getting better with age!

Check out their Facebook page for updates and go see them if you have the opportunity!

Flash Harry at the Opera House


There was a blood moon this morning starting at 4:42am but with 100% high clouds forecast I didn’t bother getting up. I did wake at 5:25am and looked out the window but the sky was a uniform darkness with no Moon or stars to be seen.

Those clouds made for a vibrant red sunrise this morning that looked amazing 🙂
