Many of the quays of Cork City were named after merchants (e.g. Lavitt’s and Pope’s). My walk this sunny September morning took me from Pope’s Quay down past Camden Quay and Patrick’s Quay before ending on Penrose Quay. Not true as I walked down the other side of the North Channel, on quays such as Lavitt’s and Merchant's to get the photographs you see here, all taken with my sturdy Canon G10. Bridges passed (west to east) were Shandon (footbridge), Christy Ring, St Patrick’s and Clontarf.
