Re: Re: Developments in Cork
This is a rough photocopy of that Morrison’s Quay photograph. The last two houses before the laneway (nos. 9 & 10) have the characteristic profile of former ‘Dutch Billys’ and appear to be in good condition here.
This is the current Google Earth view with the two ‘Billys’ demolished, sometime in the last seven years.
Unbelievably, these houses don’t appear to have been protected structures, but even that doesn’t excuse demolition of what looks like two of the last, largely unaltered ‘Billys’ in Cork, without planning permission.
Can anyone explain how this was allowed to happen?
