A Boggers Impression of Cork City

Ellie fell in love with the English Market but had this to say when we walked over Grand Parade to Sullivan’s Quay:

“What’s going on with the lights, they’re all bent”


“That looks like the castle I made in minecraft”

Went orienteering in Donerail last night – part of Summer Series, great fun.

Brought out competitive streak in Brigid who was in tears having hurt her leg until she saw next control in the distance, then was off running/hopping/wobbling away like the wind … talk about running it off.

Ellie in the meantime is wandering around looking for animal trails and hideouts where you could read your book with Brigid shouting “get ON with it!”

Anyway, Team Mahon did ok, in spite of Mammy cocking up the map-reading once

Great craic:)
