I had reason to drive to Cork city recently to a premises on North Main Street. Not knowing Cork that well, I sought the assistance of a map on the internet and started to look for North Main St. However, I just couldn’t find it and all the references in site search results were useless.
My 70 year old father happened to be in the room at the time and since he grew up in West County Waterford (not a million miles away from Cork), I decided to ask him if, by any chance, he happened to know where North Main Street in Cork was. Here is his reply…
….pause….stare at wall…pause…. “Er, um, No … but I know where North Main Street in Youghal is…”
Priceless (and useless) !!!
