Old and new Cork City

Before we leave Cork and travel to Dublin, I thought I’d post some photos illustrating the contrasts between old and new Cork. Cork, more than any ohter city we’ve been to in Ireland, embraces the new as it still preserves much of the old. Cork is a compact city. It’s downtown (or An Lár) features lots of shopping (and the English Market), wide boulevards and narrow streets, lots of churches, and many bridges over the river. Intermixed with all this, much of it old, are modern buildings and urban spaces. Take a look.
