Co Cork roundabout makes it into 2015 world roundabouts calendar

Yes, there’s a world roundabouts calendar.


You’ve been chosen to appear in the 2015 Roundabouts of the World calendar.

Yes, that’s a real thing.

Kevin Beresford (who calls himself ‘The Lord of the Rings) of the UK’s Roundabout Appreciation Society has bestowed the honour upon the Co Cork feature, praising its:

… explosion of colour and fragrance, coupled with a somewhat erotic stone sculpture featuring two entwined stallions with mounted male figures.


Extolling the Mallow roundabout’s virtues even further Beresford adds:

I personally feel this charming traffic island perfectly sums up what is the epitome of the perfect global gyratory. Roundabouts really do not come much better than this.

So now.


It’s officially Christmas time… the lights in Cork and Dublin got switched on

Here’s what Comet 67P would look like if it landed in Cork City
