Taken yesterday on a Club outing with Blackwater Photographic Society
No.168 approaches Little Island with the 1120 Cork to Cobh on the 14th April 1995. The regular services on the Cobh branch made it a good place to photograph whilst travelling by train.
This picture sums up the charm of Irish railways in the 1990s. Steam heated stock, jointed track, diesel locos. No. 168 was at this stage the last loco to carry the CIE orange and black livery.
The bridge near Belvelly Castle linking Cobh and Fota Island, Co. Cork.

MV Artania (previously Royal Princess and Artemis).Royal Princess was named by Diana, Princess of Wales at a ceremony. in Southampton, United Kingdom on 15 November 1984. The ceremony was attended by members of the public, employees of the P&O Princess Group and local and international dignitaries including Mauno Koivisto, President of Finland. The Bishop of Southampton performed a blessing prior to the naming. She was transferred to the P&O fleet in April 2005 and renamed Artemis by Prunella Scales. Artemis is one of the few cruise ships that do not have any inside cabins. Artemis was the smallest and oldest ship in the P&O cruises fleet.
In 2010 British woman Sarah Breton took charge of Artemis, becoming only the second female in the world to captain a major cruise ship and the first for P&O, following Swedish woman Karin Stahre Janson, who took charge of MS Monarch of the Seas of Royal Caribbean Cruises in 2007.
On 22 September 2009, after numerous rumours, it was announced by P&O Cruises that the ship has been sold to Artania Shipping for an undisclosed sum of money. She continued to sail for P&O Cruises until 22 April 2011, when she passed to Phoenix Reisen as mv Artania.
We love graveyards. There's something about the silence they bring and the things they whisper so eloquently in their silence.
This image was taken on a perfect afternoon and was made possible ONLY because our flickr friend, John, got us there.
This image is dedicated to you, John. I can only hope it brings you a small measure of the pleasure you gave us today.
Cheers, my friend.
STANDING ON THE PROMISES
Years ago, a friend visited Russia
and worshipped with her translator
in a church that had stood empty for decades,
condemned by those in power.
People filled the old building, stripped of its pews.
Those who couldn’t fit inside remained in the churchyard.
The old and sick were carried to the front.
All others stood.
For six hours, they stood.
Weeping for joy as one after another was baptized.
Those who stood that Sunday had never stopped praying.
Perhaps they prayed more
when the doors were locked
and worship condemned.
Perhaps some prayed for the first time.
After all, the church is more than a building.
But the Lord didn’t destroy the temple.
He just threw out the money-changers.
