PLANTER’S DAUGHTER

THE STREETS OF CORK – COBURG STREET – MAY 2011 [THE PLANTER’S DAUGHTER INSPIRED THIS CARVING]

This carving, located on Coburg Street in Cork, was inspired by wonderful carving by Austin Clark’s poem, ‘The Planters Daughter’. It was carved by Hadrian Broadley and is quite unusual in that it’s a head stone with a cut known as ‘Cork Cap’, something especially reserved for clergy.

Coburg Street was once known as Maddens Field and was an overnight holding pen for live animal exports to England – hence the street narrows on the eastern side.
