particularly loved the "Feck Off Rain" at 2.34 and the "Guinness for Strength" at 1.21 on the first Irish Times link

Thanks Usual - you are a great one for the links!

Thanks for the links Uasal, superb photography there. Neither the Times or Independent show photos of the Queens spontaneous walk about among the people of Cork on Grand Parade which for me was possibly one of the best moments of her trip (apart from her speech at Dublin Castle)

Cork Specific photos of the Queens photos here, hope the link works for you. The English market - looking splendid, and why wouldn't it? Rumour has it that the corporation spend €250k on refurbishing it !!
