Description

Cast-iron drinking water trough with decorative foliage motifs, c. 1850; no longer in use. Removed from earlier location on squared limestone wall running along river on the south side of Washington Street, now remounted on the south side of Lancaster Quay.

Appraisal

Fine example of an mid-nineteenth century drinking trough. Significant as one of a group, and for being one of relatively few in Cork city.
