Princes Street, in Cork City Centre is a hard name to pronounce. Old-time Corconians will tell you it should be Prince’s, as in the plural of the word Prince. However these days it is usually written without the apostrophe which leads many quick readers to think it is Princess. Regardless of the gender of the street it is certainly the reigning example how pedestriation + al fresco dining + summer weather can transform an Irish City into a European one.
Today Taoiseach Micheál Martin, being a Cork South Central TD and Leader of Fianna Fail, visited the Street – which now has its own website, and social media – to see firsthand the work done by Cork City Council, in conjunction with local traders.
