PUBLIC CLOCK WASHINGTON STREET [CORK CITY SHERIFF]


This clock is at 33 Washington Street in Cork. It would appear that the Cork City Sheriff is [or was] based at this address.

In the Ireland, a sheriff is a court officer in both Dublin City and County and Cork City and County who earn their fees from poundage (commission). Before 1842 two sheriffs (and the Mayor) were voted into office annually by the freemen of the borough. After that time the power of appointment of a single sheriff per year was vested in the crown.

The sheriffs are charged with enforcing civil judgements against debtors within their bailiwick.

The Dublin and Cork sheriffs also perform all the duties of returning officers in elections (other than local elections) and some other duties concerning pounds. Sheriffs may appoint court messengers, subject to approval of the Minister for Justice, to assist them with their work.
