July 26 - Cork - Invested today exploring Cork. The weather was nice and cool and the food was good. Did Tons of walking and took tons of pictures. I found another Hillbilly Chicken on The Grand Parade St. next to Bishop Lucey Park but I don't think it is as good as the one on MacCurtan Street. I checked out Bishop Lucey Park, The English Market, The memorial to fighters for Irish Independance, and the South Gate Bridge where they used to put peoples heads on stakes after they had chopped them for committing crimes......such as saying "The King Sucks" or such.
