Leaders from Daniel O'Connell to Michael Collins to Jack Lynch drew thousands onto this street for rallies. Charles Stewart Parnell, Member of Parliament for Cork, made his famous statement that `no man can fix the boundary of a nation' on this street. As home to the Cork Film Festival many Hollywood stars visited, although the most famous, albeit much forgotten resident was proto-socialist thinker William Thompson. St. Patrick's Street is Cork's main street and the heart of the city. This history takes us from its beginning in the 1780s to the present day. Copiously illustrated with maps and photographs, both new and old, and packed with information, this is for all with an interest in Cork city.
