Street Art In Cork City - Crosses Green Area


SORRY FOR THE DELAY
The area is one of the most historic areas in the city. The Dominican priory of St Mary's of the Isle was established here in 1229. In later centuries the area was a hive of industrial activity. Brewing, distilling, inshore fishing, and milling were dominant enterprises and timber yards were also established. With the decline of the industries in the late nineteen seventies the Crosse's Green area became quite shabby and run-down. The opening of the South Bank office complex and Dean's Hall student-apartment complex in 1994 revitalised the area.

Crosse's Green is also home to Meitheal Mara, a group devoted to researching the history of the Irish currach.
