Reply To: Look at de state of Cork, like!
A terrible shame about the good shepherd convent. A really beautiful building sadly destroyed. The situation reminds me of rumours I had heard when I lived in Christchurch New Zealand. A very pretty city with lots of old colonial era buildings, which, like the Cork convent, were wanted for the land they were on by very keen developers.
When I was in the city, there were quite a few fires which destroyed some of these listed buildings in ‘mysterious circumstances’.
And of course again, while the story of this buildings tragic end facinated a lot of people, RTE just give a quick mention (newsreader reads live over pictures type thing). Like… “Dublin Dublin Dublin… and in other news something or other happened in Cork…”
