Telecom Club

Telecom Club

The Telecom Club on McCurtain Street, Cork.

Telecom Éireann was the state telecoms monopoly until other companies came into the country some years ago but in it’s current state, Éircom, they still own most (all?) the copper phone lines that go into homes here.

I’m not sure of the history of the Telecom Club in Cork, but I have been in there. A few years ago I took Spanish classes there for about 3 months until my interest waned. Don’t take that for a sign of how you’ll do with your new year’s resolutions. :)

Everyman Palace Seating

Some of the seats in the Everyman Palace, Cork. It’s been ages since I saw anything there but it’s a great venue.
PS. I hardly had to process this photo, not worth putting a before pic this time!
