The Boardwalk

Last week I featured a few images of Barrack Street, an old cobbled street that leads down to the riverside and Cork City centre. Sadly many buildings on the street are in severe decline, as depicted in the posts JM Roofing & Building and Wordless Wednesday.

The images featured here present a very different side of Cork City; a wooden boardwalk runs along the river, coffee docks and restaurants encourage strollers to stop for a drink, canopies sheltering patrons from the sun (and rain).

In the background cranes stand out against the skyline while newly completed projects, such as One Albert Quay, glisten and reflect their new found superiority.

A modern and different side to the City of Cork.
