Pure #DerelictIreland

https://www.irishexaminer.com/news/munster/arid-40802241.html

These four buildings on North Main Street, Cork, are an eyesore. Thankfully they have been the subject of a compulsory purchase order by the local council so hopefully they will be saved and developed.

Please follow Frank O’Connor on Twitter where he tweets about #derelictIreland.

No Refunds on Costumes

No Refunds on Costumes

No refunds on costumes in this shop on North Main Street. Silly them, of course there are refunds if the product turns out to be faulty. Signs like those don’t change your consumer rights.

I hate posting the daily photo last thing at night. zzzz

Man on the street

Since the smoking ban was implemented people can’t smoke in pubs which drives them on to the streets where the pub owner may have some street furniture out for their convenience. No such luck on North Main Street for this man. He’s enjoying his cigarette while sitting on an electricity junction box marked clearly “DANGER Keep Away”.

The changing face of Cork City

O’Flynn Butchers used to operate from this shop until very recently. With the influx of immigrants into Ireland, North Main Street has become a lot more interesting with shops dedicated to the cuisine of other cultures!
