Cork Walk. Dillon's Cross to Murphy's Brewery

Dillon's Cross to Murphy's Brewery
Today's Cork Walk. 
The big view, with Shandon (centre) and North Cathedral (right)
Great day for a walk, blue sky and not too cold. So I headed off from Mayfield, down to Dillon's Cross and along the Old Youghal Road, past Collins Barracks, and down towards Richmond Hill, where I took most of these pictures. Then, back up to Audley Place and down Patrick's Hill, before turning up Wellington Road and home via St Luke's
St Fin Barre's Cathedral


Heineken Brewery

Shandon, with the County Hall in the distance
half hidden by trees

The North Cathedral

Shandon towers over some well known buildings here. Bottom left is the Maldron Hotel
(once the North Infirmary) and the white building "above" it is the Mercy Hospital.
The round building in the centre is the Firkin Crane and, in the distance between it
and Shandon, is the County Hall.
Looking down on Bridge Street and Patrick Street


This building on Old Youghal Road
 is where the Cameo Cinema (once a home to the
Cork Film Festival) stood
