We’ve been to Patrick Street in Cork before, including visits to the scene after the burning, but as this is the time of the anniversary of that burning, it seems appropriate to visit yet again. My late mother had a saying that Patrick Street would be the finest street in the land, if it didn’t have the bend in it! Given we seldom went to Cork, it didn’t make much sense to us, but may well have been true?
