Thanks to my Wife I have the ability to know what Coronation Street looks like, though I hardly claim this to be a pleasure. Here in Cork, in finding myself away from the usual places I know, I came across Cork’s very own rendition of Coronation Street, a little down from Collins’ Barracks on the Hill above McCurtain Street.
While the position also afforded some great views of Shandon and the old Murphy’s Brewery, alas the conditions were not in favour of stunning photography. So here are a few photos of the red-brick street, steps leading down to the Mallow Road and a view of rooftops and the spires of St Finbarr’s Cathedral. It was at the top of the steps that the post Cork Feline was taken and by the wall were the teasels.
It’s great to get lost.
