The Grand Parade Construction Site

Another view down the Grand Parade and a look at the construction site that takes up most of the street! Well known shop fronts such as the Singer Sewing Centre are visible in the background. In sharp contrast, the new Soho bar and restaurant is right next to it. It’s all modern steel beams and plate glass.

Since this photo was taken they’ve taken down the fountain in the centre of the street. I presume it’ll be put back again?

    What a headache for commuters.

    We’ve suffered Irish theme pubs over here for ages offering delights such as All Day Irish Breakfasts and, I kid you not, Champ and Sausages! So now you’ve a slice of Laaaarndon to look forward to in Cork. I hope the prices aren’t too realistic….
