I photographed this shelter in August 2021 and I revisited again in May 2022 and the artwork was very different.

This shelter, known locally as 'the shack', had been lying in a state of disrepair on the Marina for years. Every time I visit Cork I try to check the "Shack" to see if it still exists and to see if it features new artwork. As you can see from my photographs it looks much better, in May 2022, than it did when I photographed last August.

This is close to the Atlantic Pond.

Cork’s Marina was originally called a Navigation Wall or in essence it was a guidance or tracking wall to bring ships into Cork City’s South Docks area. It was completed in 1761.

The Atlantic Pond is a unique site. Its combination of freshwater, surrounding woodland, and proximity to Cork Harbour makes it an ideal habitat for freshwater, coastal, and woodland bird species, including the Grey heron that can be easily spotted nesting on the small island at the centre of the Atlantic pond. If you visit, you might even spot one of the city’s incredible urban otters at Atlantic Pond. Otters are a very elusive animal, but they have been spotted here on rare occasions! Just down from the Atlantic pond is a marshy wetland surrounded by woodland, boasting an impressive diversity of native tree species which have attracted woodland birds and insect species. Blackrock Castle Observatory is the perfect habitat for wading birds and coastal plants. When the tide is low, a wide variety of bird species can be seen foraging together on the muddy banks.
