Ok, not too sure these buildings qualify as ‘cut-stone’ but they are impressive regardless. First up are these two on Daunt Square (opposite the Crawford Gallery).

Next up is the Bridewell Garda Station on the Coal Quay (Cornmarket Street). The ‘four faced liar’ (Shandon) is on the hill behind. No matter where you go in Cork City, Shandon is visible from almost everywhere. A pretty impressive structure!

And lastly, these three shots are of the old Cork Model School (opposite City Hall). Restored several years ago and now used as a courthouse.

and nice detail in the entrance

and the tower

Yes, you’re right they don’t qualify as cut stone buildings, brick I’m sure you will agree. Another thing that’s not Daunt Square, it’s Emmet Place. Daunt Square is the area near the Former Woodford Bourne Store (McDonald’s now). Correct me if I’m wrong.

Funny how directions in Cork are always qualified with Opposite such and such, near the GPO etc. Street signage down there is hopeless!

Nice Pictures though! 🙂
