Cork City’s Earliest Rising Residents – The English Market Grey Herons…

K.O’Connell Fishmonger – English Market, Cork City.

Introducing Cork City’s Laziest Fishermen (and Women)…

An introduction to the hidden, early morning, Cork city centre. And it’s earliest-rising residents.

A fixture every Mon-Sat outside the English Market in Cork city. A must-see for visitors and residents of the city alike.

Anyone who knows me, knows I go for a run – usually really early in the morning. My route around Cork City takes me through the Grand Parade. The main street in the centre of Cork City.

That’s where I often spot the grey herons and their early morning ‘fishing expedition’. As you can see in the video, the herons are a fixture Mon-Sat outside the English Market.

Print The Legend.

I never usually see them on a Sunday though. And according to Paul of K. O’Connell’s fishmonger’s in the English market. They don’t show up on bank holidays either. Whether that’s fact or local lore.

I haven’t been able to determine yet. But I thought I’d include it anyway. Maybe someone out there can confirm the bank holiday ‘legend’ for us? Not that I don’t believe Paul or anything. But a good writer should double-check his facts nonetheless IMO.

See You There.

Anyway, like I also stated in the video. If you have the time and can spare a few euros. I’d recommend stopping by K. O’Connell’s fishmongers in the English Market and picking up some fish the day before.

Then setting the alarm clock for around 5 AM and feeding Cork city’s boldest aviary residents and seeing for yourself.

Before You Go.

    1. You can get the pick and mix from K.O.Connells in the English Market the day before if you wish Dorothy.

      They are also partial to cans of tuna…
