The thought of spending time in West Cork during a good summer is so appealing and the area around Bandon is a great place to be based! Here we have the river, a bridge across and it seems the Post Office. It's funny how things have changed because not that long ago the Post Office was one of the most important buildings in any city, town or village.
A virtual sticky bun with sprinkles to whoever can tell us what is the function of the object on the bottom left of the image with the pointy decoratiions?
