Today was my first day to us a Sony 200-600mm lens and as it is long and heavy it is very difficult to use hand held. In order to test it and to gain experience I visited the Grangegorman University campus and I was surprised to discover that I could photograph the Guinness James Street Brewery. I could in fact see the visitors in the Gravity Bar at the Guinness Storehouse.
This year I booked a week in August at the Gabriel in Cork.
With its elevated position, Gabriel House is a beautiful, period guesthouse that looks out over Cork’s cathedral spires and the harbour.

A traditional Irish breakfast is served daily and made from local ingredients, while freshly home-baked breads, biscuits scones are made daily.

As I had some time to spare I decided to visit Dublin Castle. I was aware that there had been an exhibition of sand sculptures in the upper courtyard but I had been advised that it had ended last Friday but much to my surprise I discovered that the sand sculptures were still intact.
Earlier this month it was announced that Broadstone Plaza - Grangegorman Gate would open in September. On my return form Waterford last Friday I was surprised to discover that the opening had gone ahead, without me, while I was away. I was somewhat disappointed by the fact that the college campus element was not yet fully open to the public.
