Cobblestone streets in Porto, Portugal.

In Cork, they’d be dug up and half the street surface replaced with tarmac.

On my Phone

On My Phone

Outside Papeis Pintados, a shop in Porto near the hotel I was staying in with my team from work. I suspect this was taken after a hearty meal in La Ricotto right across the road. November 2019.

Long Gone in Cork

Long Gone in Cork

Way back in 2005 before the Elysian was built. Look at all the buildings that are gone now:

  1. The warehouses in the foreground are gone.
  2. The Sextant was demolished last year.
  3. Cork Bonded Warehouses are gone a long time.
  4. In the far background many new buildings have gone up.

This view from the City Hall car park is no longer possible of course because the Elysian and new development along Alert Quay gets in the way. The new development is welcome but building more and more offices and hotels is a mistake. We need more residential development.
