Meow's Postcard Exchange

Back in early April, 2006, I put out a post on my main blog, asking if anyone wanted to join a Postcard Exchange ... this is still open. If you would like to join this exchange, just email me with your snail-mail address, and I will send you mine by return email, and there we go !!! Complete discretion is guaranteed ... your postal addresses will remain private and confidential, as (I hope) mine will to you. This blog is to display all the wonderful postcards I have received.

This postcard arrived today ... June 17th 2007. Thank you, Jean-Luc (Capt. Picard) for continuing to think of me and my Postcard Exchange. Jean-Luc has just returned to England, after doing a bit of travelling. This postcard is from Cobh, Co. Cork ... Situated in Cork harbour and only 24 kms from the city of Cork. The magnificent St. Colman's Cathedral which dominates the scene is the glory of the Diocese of Cloyne and is constructed in the French Gothic style. It has an impressive exteror of blue Dalkey granite. The cathedral has a carillon of forty seven bells, one of the largest in these islands.
