Cork City, Ireland

I first visited Cork in the summer of 2002, taking a bus from Kilkenny.

After a couple of later visits, I decided in the summer of 2009 to explore Cork for housing and employment.

I lived there from August 2009 until about a year later when I moved back to Kilkenny.

• The house on Ballyhooly Road...

Cork city north and south of the river — and in-between...

Notes from the flood of 2009...
