Way back in 2005 Carroll’s Quay in Cork looked quite different. The apartment block that sits there now was only half finished. The block behind it was nearing completion and what used to be a medical office was exposed to the elements when builders demolished half of that building.

Take a look at it in on Google Maps.

Carroll’s Quay Apartments

This is the apartment block that sprang up opposite the car park, from which I took this photo.

The building itself is a dull grey monstrosity. Large windows look out on the street, hardly offering any privacy for residents. Tiny balconies sit outside some of the windows.
