Big Smoke

“Back in the Big Smoke”

Bull Island (or North Bull Island to be precise) is situated in the Irish Sea just off Clontarf and is accessible by car or foot via a wooden bridge. The Artdeco bathing shelters and Kiosk on the Bull Wall were designed by Herbert Simms, (Housing architect to Dublin Corporation from 1932 until 1948), in 1934

Up the hill for Jack & Jill

A great day was had by our four-legged friends and all the gang who gathered at Mutleys, Portmarnock for the annual charity walk.

Thanks to everyone who made this a special event for a worthwhile cause.

Don’t ‘Kill Bill’

Snapped these happy chappies in Portmarnock a while back. They have no fear of the camera or anything else for that matter and almost get themselves run over on a daily basis as they jump the wall onto the busy road nearby. Motorists please note…
