On the day ex-Hurrricane "Ophelia" is set to land in Ireland and starting in Cork we thought we should put up another Cork image in solidarity with the people there! This view from the top of the County Hall shows lots of Council(?) trucks and sheds, and some of the local roads. I am sure that in the intervening years a lot has changed in the locality and it would be interesting to see that view today? To all our contributors, stay safe!
Perhaps unsurprisingly, while ex-hurricane Ophelia kept many of the country's roads quite today, this stretch of the Carrigrohane Straight remained quiet (comment wise) today. Hopefully everyone kept safe, warm and dry today - and didn't venture onto any windy heights as Mr. O'Dea did. Codladh sámh!
