Big Changes at the Milk Market in Limerick

I have been keeping an eye on the work at the Milk Market. It looked quiet for a while I guess the frozen ground was slowing things up but there was a burst of activity lately and on the way back from the Band Parade I noticed that a huge pole was now in place. On my way through town today the roof was pretty much in place!
It will be a great addition to Limerick and I am sure that the local traders will be happy to get things back to normal as soon as possible!

Photos from St Patrick's Day 2011 are over at our Site

Fantastic St Paddy's day parade today in Limerick. With the largest number of people taking part in the parade for quite a few years. The parade took over 2 Hours to make it's way down O'Connell St with loads for the huge crowds to see. I have over 1000 photos of today to go through and they should all be uploaded this evening. I am uploading in Parade order so if you want to jump to your part of the parade click on the slideshow below and then click on view all to see all of the photos. You can also download any photos you want from there.

Photos from St Patricks Strongman Challenge

Went along to Sean Chol Sports Complex this afternoon for the Limerick St Patricks Strongman Challenge. Very entertaining and all the competitors looked like they were enjoying themselves. They were shifting some amazing weights! As you can see from the photos.

The weather held off, except for a few sprinkles, for the parade this morning. The number of bands was way up on last year thanks to the trojan work from the organisers and Futurama Productions. There was a good turnout for the parade and it was very entertaining. Looking forward to the main parade later this week.

Photos from Limerick Skyfest Fireworks 2010

An amazing show this evening at Limericks Skyfest Fireworks Show. The time seemed to fly by and the crowd were in awe at the Fireworks Display which was visible all around Limerick City and also far out into
the county as well! This was most certainly the Largest Fireworks Show Limerick has ever seen with over 1.5
tons of Fireworks being used.

Skyfest Limerick Setup Now Complete - Photos

The rigging of the Fireworks is now complete and with 1.5 Tons of Fireworks all set it looks like it is really going to be a great show.

The Castle is rigged with lights and fireworks so try and get a spot where you can see it. Otherwise the high altitude Fireworks from the large bore Mortars will be seen all around the city.

I will be posting photos of the fireworks and parades over the weekend. Is check back for more or visit the MunsterImages section of the site to view all our Galleries

Virtual tour of Limerick expanded.

I have added two nice Photosynth interactive views of the Milk Market to the Virtual tour of Limerick section of the site.  -
It was taken around 2 weeks ago so if you were at the market see if you can spot yourself or someone you know! Click on the Camera Icon on the map and then on the link to the page on the popup window.

How Does it Work?
In simple terms, Photosynth allows you to take a bunch of photos of the same scene or object and automagically stitch them all together into one big interactive 3D viewing experience that you can share with anyone on the web.

Photosynth is a potent mixture of two independent breakthroughs: the ability to reconstruct the scene or object from a bunch of flat photographs, and the technology to bring that experience to virtually anyone over the Internet.

Using techniques from the field of computer vision, Photosynth examines images for similarities to each other and uses that information to estimate the shape of the subject and the vantage point each photo was taken from. With this information, we recreate the space and use it as a canvas to display and navigate through the photos.

Providing that experience requires viewing a LOT of data though—much more than you generally get at any one time by surfing someone’s photo album on the web. That’s where our Seadragon™ technology comes in: delivering just the pixels you need, exactly when you need them. It allows you to browse through dozens of 5, 10, or 100(!) megapixel photos effortlessly, without fiddling with a bunch of thumbnails and waiting around for everything to load.
