Every time I get to come home to Cork for a weekend I take a few hours out to walk around the city centre, playing a game of 'spot the difference' and just generally soaking in the atmosphere. I've always had an afinity for the Hugenot quarter and the lanes, but I had forgotten about these little terraces until recently. They really are beautiful little houses, the brick detail and the proportions of each dwelling are fabulous! does anyone have any history on them, or know if there are plans for them in the future?
I heard that they were being bought up one by one, for what ends I don't know.
