A Paddle Steamer churning up the water as it moves past "Curripinny" in Crosshaven, County Cork. That must have been a wonderful sight to see when Mr. French took the shot? There are people at the stern there so was this a passenger or day trip event and what was/is that large institutional style building on the far shore?
