Nice. They’re getting off the plane directly into cars. I was wrong, they had to walk to the main terminal and go through passport control. And here are their drivers who kindle posed for a photo. The film crew came out a few minutes later.
A few photos of the River Martin in Blarney, swollen after the rains of Storm Frank yesterday. Not pictured are the broken garden fences I haphazardly repaired in torrential rain last night. At least the rain stopped this morning to let me repair the roof of our shed. Cold tonight with clear spells and light […]
Ireland experienced a deluge of rain, and it’s not finished yet, but for some it’s an excuse to wakeboard in a flooded field. 🙂 Nice to see Fergal out there taking photos. He’s not usually the one being photographed!
There may have been a bit missing from the Ferris Wheel on The Grand Parade yesterday, but I’m informed that all bits are accounted for now.

They specialise in Lebanese and Moroccan food and it is delicious. I’m making myself hungry looking at these photos, brb. Yum Yum!

We had dinner in the Sultan restaurant this evening and it was delicious. This is Meshawi Mix, a mixture of marinated lamb and chicken, Lebanese bread and more. Check out their menu.
If you live in Cork you’ll be familiar with KC’s in Douglas. Here’s their story. I’m getting hungry for one of their pitas now!
This is a not-so flattering look at Cork City on a Saturday night, but it’s probably repeated most everywhere where drink is served. I like the music though. Could this be a sneaky attempt to make a viral video for the musician? Bet there’ll be an exclusive interview with thejournal.ie or The Examiner in a […]
