Shandon

The golden salmon weather vane stands proud at the top of the Shandon bell tower overlooking the city of Cork, Ireland. The tower can be climbed by visitors to Cork where you can not only take in the view but ring the well known bells themselves. There’s even some suggested tunes to try. For many people, this is the symbol of Cork City and appears centrally on the Cork badge.

  1. MM, you have made this place look magnificent! The quality of the light on the columns is lovely. I rang the bells myself a couple of months ago. What a great view from the top. Hope you have some images to share!
