The centre of Cork City (Ireland) lies on an island surrounded by the River Lee, it’s two channels being known as the North Channel and unsurprisingly the South Channel. This isn’t obvious to visitors without looking at a map, but the bottom line is the area where the City stands was once marsh. Flooding and subsidence can be a bit of an issue. In my walk into the City this old building caught my eye, or more specifically the old first floor window / door. The detail of the decoration speaks of rich times past but sadly the building is now in severe decay and the need for structural supports highly evident.
