Frank O'Connor House, 84 Douglas Street.

Frank O'Connor House

One of a pair of early 18th century small-scale domestic houses. The survival of so many of its original internal features makes it particularly rare. A conservation project executed by Cork City Council, was seen as a model for carrying out small scale projects in a reasonable time and at a moderate cost. The writer, Frank O'Connor, was born here in September 1903. View Buildings

Churches of Cork

Cork City has a particularly fine collection of churches dating from the 18th to the 20th centuries. They illustrate well the changing taste and aspirations of the communities that built them - from the magnificence of William Burges' French-gothic St Finbar's Cathedral to the modernist Christ the King at Turner's Cross.
