I USED A SONY RX0 CAMERA
The station which opened on February 2, 1893 was originally called Glanmire Road Station, but was renamed for Thomas Kent in 1966 on the 50th anniversary of the Easter Rising.
I never liked Kent Railway station in Cork but it is much better since it has been redeveloped and reorganised. There is now a new underground pedestrian exit to Horgan’s Quay and a new internal access road to a proper transport hub from where bus services can travel directly to the city centre via the quays. In my opinion the frequency of the bus service to the city centre is not acceptable.
Horgan’s Quay, Cork, comprise a six acre mixed used development centred around the conservation of the site’s Industrial heritage. The refurbishment of the Station House now forms the centrepiece of the Residential development. The Carriage Shed will house Retail and Restaurant uses adjoining the Hotel. The Goods Shed refurbishment and restoration of the nine metre high Cork Limestone wall are integral to the development of the Office buildings.
