On this day 103 years ago, April 15th 1912, the Titanic sank with the loss of some 1,500 souls.

This rickety pier in Cobh, County Cork, once served as the White Star Pier, and was the final boarding point for 123 passengers who boarded the ship at Cobh (known as Queenstown at the time), before setting off on their tragically ill-fated journey.

Several passengers disembarked at Cobh, including Father Frank Browne, who was training to be a Jesuit priest, he took the now famous final photographs of the doomed ship as it left Cobh harbour.
The pier is in a very precarious state of preservation, we can only hope that steps are taken to preserve this important piece of Cobh's heritage.

First day in our new upstairs restaurant.

Couldn't get enough seats ... food was a bit slow ... underfloor heating STILL not operational ...

... But definitely a success.

On my way up mount eagle. Skellig Michael and An Fear Marbh islands are visible. An Fear Marbh translates as "the dead man" ... You can see his arms folded.

It is certainly interesting ...
Candide Thovex, the French professional skier, invites us along for the ride as he explores the slopes, tunnels and cafés of Val Blanc – and the results are out of this world (make sure you watch to the end)

Was out drinking with the smurfs.

The "wran" at Dingle is fantastical.
