CORK CITY AND COUNTY MAY 2023
I had not planned to photograph this pub but I was photographing the nearby cemetery and it began to rain so I decided to get a bus back to the city centre and the bus stop was directly across the street from Flannerys.
I was hoping to visit Cork again at the end of this month but I decided that the the hotel was way too expensive so I cancelled and I hope to visit Limerick instead in September and possibly Waterford in October.
Glasheen is a suburb in south central Cork city in Ireland. The area earned its name from the stream that flows through it, under the Glasheen Road. Glasheen means small stream in Irish. After the Siege of Cork in 1690 and the demolition of the city wall, prominent families started to move out of the congested city to the peacefulness of the countryside to make their homes — including the Sheares family, who were noted bankers. In 1729, they built their home, which is still standing today, in the village on a hill opposite today’s popular Flannery’s Pub. Two sons of the house, John and Henry Sheares were executed in Dublin on 14th July 1798 on the charge of treason for their part in the United Irishmen movement.
