Photos from near Cork

Cork Harbour is the natural harbor formed by the estuary of the River Lee and is home to the town of Cobh (pronounced Cove), with its colorful houses and rich maritime history. A little north is Fota, a great botanical and wildlife park

only in ireland

only in Ireland you can sign with a speed limit of 80 kph on very small roads
Here, there's a narrow bridge, and a sharp bend, where you have to switch to 1st gear
Also, 20 m in my back, so before this sign, there's a junction... !
And you know what ? at the back of this sign 80 kph, it says 60 kph... !
