Smoke from the burning Sunset Ridge Hotel

There’s an old derelict hotel in the village of Killeens near where I live and this evening it went up in flames, spewing a huge mass of ugly smoke into the air. Tonight’s bonfire night in Cork so it’s obviously done maliciously.

Paul Reidy posted photos from the scene on his Facebook account. I’m surprised there’s anything left to burn there as it’s been set alight multiple times in the past. The place should be demolished and something productive done with the site.

Here’s a video from someone who was going to film it for a Cork history video.

Great Parking

I was back and forth to the car a few times while we were in town. Each time there was someone trying to reverse into that space before realising they wouldn’t make it.

Until an old Nissan Micra pulled up and reversed in like a champ. I hope they had room to get their car door open.
