Digging up Daunt Square

Digging up Daunt Square

Flash back to 2005 if you will. Ireland is in the grip of the Celtic Tiger boom. Cork is undergoing a transformation. The city’s streets were dug up and remolded with apparently improved drainage (didn’t help recently unfortunately) and the revamping of the city centre was in full swing.

Here’s the construction on Daunt Square, with behind it the long gone Virgin Megastore.

St Mary's Cathedral, Killarney

St Mary’s Cathedral, Killarney in the background. We walked around the town a few weeks back but I didn’t have time to get down to the Cathedral this time. Still impressive, even from this distance.

I wonder if “Tim O’Brien & Sons Furniture Carpets” is online anywhere?
