Situated on the promenade in John F. Kennedy memorial park in Cobh. This unusual statue is a Christ like figure with his hands held up, cradling a paper ship. It represents hope that he will always be present in the background to steer and guide humanity.
Ah, Temple Bar. A pretty cool place. It's interesting to think about all the tourists who go to Temple Bar and think that it's an Irish experience. A lot of us (Irish people) actually avoid Temple Bar because it is so expensive! The Temple Bar area is always full of tourists who are on holiday, and happy to be! So, it's not a bad thing. Many people have great days/nights in Temple Bar because of the ever-present 'holiday vibes' around the place. Tourists will go home and tell their neighbours about the pleasant experience they had in Ireland! Yes, a lot of their time may have been spent with Sebastien, Sara and Mohammed, but it was definitely in Ireland! The Irish tourism industry is booming at the moment and I think a big reason for this is the clearly defined 'tourist spots' across the country. What do you think?
