Remember Zavvi in Cork? They took over from Virgin Megastore which then became Director’s Cut in The Queen’s Old Castle.

The Men’s Shed in Blarney constructed this fabulous float for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Blarney yesterday. It was voted the best float of the day by a panel who reviewed the parade.
The cart was made by members of the Shed so, as the announcer in the village said, it may be the newest cart pulled by a horse in the country now.

The Grand Parade in Cork was quite different 11 years ago. Outside Bishop Lucey Park was an uneven path, the centre of the street was a narrow section between two busy strips of tarmac. And of course the Capitol Cinema was still open. I’m glad the monstrosity pictured here was never built there, even if the site is still dormant. More info on the history of that site available here.
This shot was taken within minutes of this Grand Parade shot I posted last month.

Many Cork people think the Peace Park is Bishop Lucey Park on the Grand Parade but it’s actually at the top of South Mall next to the Electric bar. It’s hard to blame them. If you do a search for cork peace park the first link goes to the Wikipedia page for Bishop Lucey park but at least the first paragraph there explains the mistake.
Pictured is the World War I memorial on the site.
