I stress, a small bit… It’s not exactly the great fire of London or a scene from a Hollywood movie, but anyone familiar with Douglas (Cork) will probably know that on the Carrigaline road there are a couple of abandoned houses used regularly by ‘youngsters’ for the purposes of ‘gatting’. Well, now there’s one less…




Snapped quickly before the GardaĆ­ arrived and gave me a short, sharp lesson on pissing off. Nothing too dramatic, more to find out where the plume of smoke was coming from that suddenly wafted in front of the house while I was watching TV and browsing eBay. It begs the question, how much longer until the next abandoned house gets the same treatment? A few more of these.
