In the tower of the 18th century St Anne’s Church in Shandon, hang the Shandon Bells and visitors can try to ring a tune out of them. However, while the tower stands on a hill, getting a decent photograph isn’t always easy as it stands crowded by narrow streets and houses. Normally I would see the salmon weather vane from below, on the Mallow Road or the city centre.
Going on a wander near Collins’ Barracks I was lead to a small green area on a separate hill which gave me the best view of this Cork landmark that I have come across to date. Conditions were not great for taking pictures, but here is a picture converted to black and white of the tower. Fingers crossed the weather will be better next time.
