These have got to be the best example of architectural ceramics I saw in Cork. This is the frontage of the Metropole Hotel in McCurtain Street.
I can’t find out much about the history of the building apart from a couple of old photos dated 1900. These show these pillars as part of a row of enclosed shop fronts with the hotel above.
In a city where Victorian and early 20c buildings are everywhere, these pillars certainly stand out!
