STREET ART IN THE VQ – DEVONSHIRE STREET CORK
I used my iPhone 12 Pro Max.
It would appear that an area of Cork City is now being marketed as the Victorian Quarter and the area includes Devonshire Street were I cam across this example of street art. I think that St Luke’s Cross should have been included as that is where I stay when I visit.
Devonshire Street derives its name from Abraham Devonsher who was a merchant in Cork in the eighteenth century. He served as High Sheriff of County Cork in 1762. He also served as an M.P. for Rathcormac on three occasions between 1756 and 1776. Originally a Quaker, he was expelled from the Quaker community in 1756 for ‘conformity to the world’ and for his involvement in politics.
