  1. So now they’re expanding in Ireland as well.
    Three years ago when I was in Dublin I actually found it kinda strange that Henry Street was the only H&M branch in the city centre. I mean compared to what we have here in Austria…

  2. Will – true that Dunnes will probably be the biggest shop there but I didn’t know H&M will be there. Sorta big news for the city, even if there’s a lack of money to go around!

    Thomas – yeah, the UK multiples have been slow to come here. Boots got here, oh I don’t know, but in the last 10 years.

    I think the curved glass facade right behind you in this shot is something beautiful. It is only the slightest bit of innovation (a curve) but it is so beautiful compared to the cubic efforts at modernism that are now in this part of the city centre. When you look at some of the sorry commercial developments in Cork over the last 25 years (merchants Quay, Paul St., North Main Street, Wilton and so on) You’d be forgiven for thinking that Cork had suffered from Blitz bombings! (Not that I’m a traditionalist or anything).

    Still – a good archive shot. It is strange to think that the digging up of Cork city centre (the Main Drainage on St. Patrick Street started 10 years ago).
