Photographs from Ireland, September 2011

The South West Coast of Ireland is considered to be the “Irish Riviera” as it claims “The Best” weather in Ireland. “The Best” is a relative term, although we had mostly sunshine.

The Round Tower in Ardmore, County Waterford, Ireland

At the start of the Cliff walk in Ardmore, County Waterford, Ireland are ruins from the time of St. Declan who lived in the region around 350-450 AD.  Ardmore is thought to be  the oldest Christian settlement in Ireland. St. Declan Christianised this area before the coming of St. Patrick.

Belfast Murals, West Belfast, Northern Ireland

leave a comment »

The Belfast Murals located in West Belfast, Northern Ireland. represent the political views, memorials for those lost in the battle between Catholics and Protestants in the age old battle for Northern Ireland on both the Catholic and Protestant sides of West Belfast and other politically related scenes from Belfast. Infamous black taxis take tourists around predominantly working class West Belfast to see the famous wall murals painted by both the Republicans who are Catholics and in favor of a United Ireland and the Unionists who are Protestants and in favor of northern Ireland remaining a part of Great Britain.

Robinson’s Pub in Belfast, Northern Ireland

 

The following clip was from a small session in the Horse and Hound pub in Delgany, Wicklow County. Still images to come.

The Horse and Hound:

“Probably the oldest pub in the vicinity as it has been established since 1790. It echoes of an older equestrian tradition and although the houndsmen have vanished now into history, the atmosphere of a distinctive local tavern remains here. Food is servedfrom full meals to snacks.” from www.discoverireland.ie

Apparently wordpress won’t let me imbed a .mov or even paste an imbed code! I’ve done a search. Any advice?

Temple Bar, Dublin

Climbing up Sugarloaf Mountain is a Saint Stephen’s Day tradition for many families in Wicklow County, Ireland, despite the ice and freezing temperatures. Sugarloaf is not the highest peak in Ireland but it holds some of of the most majestic views and ona clear day one can see as far as the city of Dublin.

Icy Ireland

with one comment

So my Macbook Pro battery is fried and I have slow and limited access to the internet. Done very little documentary work but was just inspired by my friend Jim Sugar and a program on his photography work from 1969 in Ireland that was featured on the cover of a National Geographic. He went back and did a follow up visit with the subjects of his photos to see where are they now – very well done. It’s on RTE. I can’t find the actual link on the connection I m on but it is somewhere on www.rte.ie.

My new camera RAW files can’t seem to be opened by my CS3 or Lightroom v.2 so I can’t open anything I shot the first part of my trip. Do not have the bandwith to do an internet research on a solution nor download a plug in even if I knew where to find the plug in. Open to suggestions!!

The weather has been record cold. One friend just told me she heard it was the coldest its been in 50 years for this time of  year in Ireland. It’s been 2 weeks of subzero temps (Celsius) and frozen ice all over all the roadways making travel on anything beyond the main motorways difficult, so my sightseeing has been limited to cities and anything near to Greystones, where I am staying. Just came back from a few days in Galway City for my birthday.

If you find yourself in Galway City check out Conley’s for Seafood. Local oysters, smoked salmon, calamari, mussels. One of the best meals of my life. Owner is terrific.

Meanwhile pics from the last few days of 2009. One of the raging sea here in Greystones, Wicklow County and one from Kilkenny County.
