Reply To: Beamish’s contempt for Cork
Keep paint well away – there’s too much happy clappy sunset yellow in this country! The very appeal of the section stems from the fact that it’s rendered – the same applies to so many 1920s & 30s houses, people just itch to paint away their supposed grubbiness – leave them alone!
What a bizzare building – the regional differences in older buildings is great in this country, esp the south differing from the Dublinesque of the north east – so many quirky features completely alien to the almost standardised architecture of the Dublin-influenced area.
That Heineken porch is woeful.
