Re: Re: Most Beautiful Building in Cork?
Surprised no-body mentioned ‘Bishop Lucey Park’ – the “Peace Park” as a good example of open public space – small, but an important break in the rows of buildings that dominate the city centre.
Agreed, it’s a lovely spot.
Just to be pedantic about it however- Bishop Lucey Park is that park stretching from South Main Street to Grand Parade, the one which I believe you are referring to Lex. It is not and has never been officially called the Peace Park.
The peace park is that small green area at the corner of Grand Parade and South Mall which contains the Hiroshima/Nagasaki memorial and the WW2 memorial.
Its just a small thing, but it really bugs me and the confusion seems to be spreading.
