Complex Cobh

Cobh (Cove) is an interesting place. To be brutally honest- and no doubt I’ll be offending someone by saying this – but I think it seems to have more going for it in it’s past than in it’s present. To be fair, today is a bit grey and damp, and nowhere benefits from that kind […]

It’s a pretty town, and the weather today is stunning, so I wandered through the town, along the river, around the forest, by the Harbour -the […]
