This is the weather vane at the top of the tower on the Cork District Court. It used to be a school, An Módh Scoil, or Model School, where I attended in the eighties.
I’d never seen this weather vane up close and level like this before until a few days ago when I made this photo. From my memory, there’s a doorway to the tower near the main entrance to the building. I’ve never been up there but I was always curious about it.
They’ve done an amazing job of preserving this building. It didn’t looks quite as good when it was simply a primary school!
