Urban Story : A Night in Cork

Urban Story : A Night in Cork

Cork is known for many things—Murphy’s Irish stout and the rivalry with Dublin among others—the former probably contributing to the latter. It’s an Irish city full of character, with a beautiful island in the center which is surrounded by the channels of River Lee.

As a teen I knew Cork because of one of its most prominent sons—Rory Gallagher. Indeed “Calling Card” was the first CD I ever bought and I still have it. Rory was not born in Cork but he was raised there with the city being a vital influence to his amazing blues and out of this world guitar playing.

Corkonians take great pride in their city and it didn’t take me long to see why. I was lucky to be there even for a day, and spend my sleepless night capturing Cork’s atmospheric streets, the tranquil bridges and the dark banks of River Lee. This is a photo-essay of that night.
