COBH GARDA STATION
Built in the shape of a ship, complete with crow’s nest, funnel and portholes, the design of Cobh Garda Station, which was opened in April 2002, is appropriate given the town’s long standing and famous maritime links. The large building hasn’t met with universal approval though, some liking it to a Mississippi paddle-boat!
At least it was an attempt at something different. The station is just along the railway line from the well known Heritage Centre and can be seen from ground level or from the road above and, controversial or not, it is worth the short walk, unless of course you are hand-cuffed to a member of the force!
