the city centre is too run run down and under developed to be architecturally impressive beyond the wallpaper that is beth galli's work on patrick street. the school of music would have been the jewel in the crown of the gate, opera, and....well, that's it really...

Actually efforts are being made to rejuvenate some of the more dilapedated areas of the city - I've never seen so many cranes on Corks skyline as there are at present.
I'm not saying that the results will be architecturally beautiful but they must be an improvement on the delapidation and dereliction which have characterised much of the city for too long.

In any case - Cork is a city in Ireland, which is the Capital of Culture for 2005. This is something all of Ireland should be behind and PROUD of. We're not getting a shot at this for a l-o-n-g time again.
