We are staying in the "Rebel County" today, just because it is a good thing to do. I believe all Corkonians will agree with the decision to present this wonderful landscape / cityscape.
I am not very good on sports, where is swordscookie
when you need him? Probably off somewhere nice enjoying the Sun! If he was here he might explain why rugby and Sunday's Well seem linked in my mind?
Though labelled "Sunday's Well" (and the foreground certainly includes much of that area of the northside of Cork), the consensus from contributors to this image is that it was taken from off Donovan's Road on the south side. Perhaps from Connaught Avenue, but certainly across the Western Road and taking in the city entrance to UCC....
