The changing face of Cork City

O’Flynn Butchers used to operate from this shop until very recently. With the influx of immigrants into Ireland, North Main Street has become a lot more interesting with shops dedicated to the cuisine of other cultures!

Interesting thought. I live in the part of Cambridge with the most diverse ethnic community, and until the early hours you can walk into an asian supermarket or a turkish takeaway and get a whole range of stuff, easily. But I do regret the fact that the small, independent butchers and fishmongers are being squeezed out by the supermarkets.
