Cork City has undergone quite a bit of development since the years of the Celtic Tiger. The old Cork to Bandon railway line was well and truly gone before the Celtic Tiger gave Ireland a much needed economic boost, but a small part of it remains to remind of us of how well the railway served the people of Cork for over one hundred years.

This commemorative plaque depicts an engine know as “The Bandon Tank” and can be found at the Kinsale Roundabout in Cork, where the “Snotty Bridge” once stood. The Kinsale Roundabout is a true symbol of 21st century Ireland. It is a major point of entry to the city for commuters coming from all directions.
