Two Sides of Shandon – Part II

In Part I which was published on Friday 6th June, we showed the hustle and bustle of the street side of Shandon Tower. Here in Part II of the post we head around the back of the church of St. Anne’s to the old graveyard and also peer in on the Alms Houses which can be found here.

On this side of the church it is possible to just unwind, relax and contemplate.

In the lane by the side of the church one can also find the house where Jack Lynch was born, after whom the well known Jack Lynch Tunnel was named. Jack Lynch is one of Cork’s most famous sons, becoming Taoiseach (Irish Prime Minister) for a total of 9 years over two terms. He was also a dual GAA Player, representing Cork in both Hurling and Gaelic Football.
