When did you last use a public phone?

When did you last use a public phone?

The public phones at the top of St. Patrick’s Street Cork are in a sorry state. Eircom, the original national phone company in Ireland, haven’t been known publicly as Eircom since 2015 according to the Eir Wikipedia page.

They really should get rid of those eyesores.

Michael O’Regan in Yellow

Michael O’Regan in Yellow

Michael O’Regan has been selling the Echo newspaper in this spot on Patrick Street, Cork since 1969. He was a familiar sight to generations of Cork people.

I haven’t seen him in a long time, and this photo was taken in 2006. The latest information I can find on him is a photo taken of him in January 2020 when he met the Lord Mayor of Cork, John Sheehan.

You’re more likely to see a street preacher or the guy with the “global harming” sign near this spot on St. Patrick’s Street, Cork. Back in 2004 we were treated to some guitar and banjo playing.

Look up for history

The building that now houses Golden Discs on Patrick’ Street in Cork used to be the Pavilion Cinema. If you look closely at the top of the building you can see the faded lettering of that establishment.
