I can almost hear the protests as I type! Youghal and Cobh/Queenstown are two distinct towns in County Cork and North Youghal is not a part of the latter! Labelling aside, this lovely Eason image of South (or is it North?) Main Street in Youghal has so much going on that it makes a fitting image to end the week. Hats, bonnets, chemises aka shimmys, little street urchins and nary a motoring car at all at all. Wonderful!
