Reply To: Look at de state of Cork, like!
I recently had northern European visitiors visit Cork.
They were much struck by the prevalence of dereliction, next to development, in the main streets. Likewise the 60’s and 70’s tat was much noticed. While I would regard downtown Cork as more interesting than downtown Dublin, if a little rough around the edges, they did not have this view at all.
They could not believe the incomprehensible down town traffic system, which is very poorly signed as usual in Ireland, and when I told them how long the Patrick Street road works had been continuing they thought I was telling lies.
They also found prices very very expensive by the way, so will not be back for the City of Culchies in 2005.
