OLD BLACKROCK ROAD CORK MAY 2022
South Infirmary Victoria University Hospital is based on the Old Blackrock Road but due to a lack of time I did not explore the full length of the road, even though I visited both ends, but if all goes well I will visit again in the not too distant future. The lack of time was because I was trying to find the McCarthy Monument on Blackrock Road. I managed to walk by the monument without seeing it and I actually photographed a building beside it.
The South Infirmary was established by a catholic charity and officially opened in 1762. Meanwhile the Victoria Hospital for Women and Children, which had been established by a protestant charity and opened at Union Quay in September 1874, moved to Pope’s Quay October in October 1876 and then re-located to a site adjacent site to the South Infirmary in September 1885. The two hospitals officially merged as the South Infirmary-Victoria Hospital in 1988. After a name change to South Infirmary-Victoria University Hospital in 2005, the hospital expanded with three new operating theatres being completed in 2012.
