Across the Chetwynd Railway Viaduct

Across the  Chetwynd Railway Viaduct

Most Cork people are familiar with the Chetwynd Railway Viaduct built over the Bandon Road near Bishopstown. Here it is from the top, in 2005.

An important and substantial landmark designed by Charles Nixon, Engineer, which makes a dramatic contribution to the surrounding area. It carried trains on its single line from Cork to West Cork until 1961. It stands 90ft above the road and has a 21ft span. The viaduct displays fine craftsmanship in the stone work seen in the piers and excellent design in the elegant steel arches.

Pet Shop Boys at the Marquee

The Pet Shop Boys played to a capacity crowd in the Marquee, Cork, last night and it was a great night. We bought the tickets originally in 2019 for a 2020 show but then the COVID19 pandemic happened and everything was cancelled that year.

The Examiner has a great write up of the concert (archive.org copy) of the event.

The British electro-pop duo were anything but boring, attracting a packed crowd that ranged across all ages, with families, groups of friends, and couples all bopping and clapping side by side through the night.

If fans have learned anything over the Pet Shop Boys’ 40-year long career, it’s that Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe know how to put on a show, and from the moment they sauntered on stage wearing their mad-scientist inspired outfits they had the audience in the palms of their talented hands.

Martha Brennan, Examiner.
