Cork's Main Streets

Cork Folklore Project Image

This is an oral history mapping project with stories from North and South Main Streets (the historic streets of the medieval city of Cork).

This project uses excerpts from the Cork Folklore Project's oral history archive. All of the audio content and interview excerpts presented here are © Cork Folklore Project.

We hope that you enjoy these stories from North and South Main Streets in Cork.

Please note that some of these interviews are street recordings and may therefore include some background noise. We believe that this reflects the Cork Folklore Project's work, within the community and embedded in everyday life.

A special "thank you" to all contributors!
