Corned Brisket

Corned Brisket

One of the many butchers in The English Market. I’ve had brisket a few times, but only ever in the USA. Doesn’t seem to be a popular cut of meat here.

A long time fixture of the English Market in Cork is this fruit stall run by M F Murphy.

It’s not all doom and gloom for shopkeepers. These ladies were obviously having a great ol’ chat in this shop in the English Market last month.

Another shot from the WW photowalk on July 18th. I seem to be getting a couple of good ones out of that day after all!

A butchers shop in The English Market was all decorated in white and red flags last Saturday. Did Cork have a big game last weekend?

Market Avenue in the centre of Cork City is a tiny little street behind An Brog pub. You know, just outside the fish section of the English Market.

A corner shop in the English Market has a simple but effective way of shutting up shop for the day. Put a broom stick across the entrance!

The English Market is completely roofed over and locked tight at night so I guess traders feel reasonably safe with minimal security precautions. That’s what’s wonderful about the market. It’s in the centre of Cork City yet it feels like an entirely different place, like a village market with stalls.

Definitely worth a visit if you’re a tourist in Cork.
