You would be forgiven for thinking these very large and decorative Thursday Doors belong to a place of worship. In fact, more playing than praying goes on in ‘Cyprus Avenue’ – a live music venue on Caroline Street in Cork city. I’m not sure what type of business operated from here in the past but there are buildings on some of the city’s streets that tell you their original story, in spite of them changing hands many times down through the years.
Like the old Copper Works building that now houses ‘The Athlete’s Foot’ – great name for a shoe store.
And I went out on a limb to take this one:
If you like spending time in the kitchen, you’ll love this next one; Brennan’s Cook Shop. It’s an Aladdin’s cave of culinary utensils. You might even find a left-hand kick start for a racing turkey – as we say here when we come across a mysterious object. The building houses a cookery school where you can also learn the delicious craft of cake decorating.
I hope this has whetted your appetite for more Thursday Doors. If so, have a look at Norm’s blog and check out the little blue ‘frog’ link at the bottom of his post. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.
