Beautiful day for cultural visit to the historic women's prison in Cork, known as the "Old City Gaol". At this time of year, Fitzgerald's park is an oasis of calm. Walking to the Gaol entails passing over the Shakey Bridge (no prizes for guessing why it was given this name!).

The prison was built in 1818, it was originally used exclusively as a prison for women but in later years (1922 and 1923), the prison was opened to male and female Republican (anti-treaty) prisoners of the Irish Civil War.

Day trip to the picturesque town of Kinsale, located on the Wild Atlantic Way. The historic church of St. Multose was also visited. The church is steeped in Irish history. St. Multose founded a monastery here in the 6th century AD and this church is named for him. Built in 1190 (the oldest building in Kinsale) but with substantial alterations over the years, this remains an interesting example of Norman architecture and has remained in continuous use to the present day.

Some interesting features include an inscription in Norman French, the Easter sepulcher, the Baptismal font, the carved memorials, and the reredos from the Galway chapel as well as the wooden Coat of Arms. The Southwell Memorial in Carrera marble, is the work of Arnold Quellin of London.

It was in this church that Prince Rupert was proclaimed Charles II as King, after hearing the news that Cromwell had had King Charles I executed in London. Prince Rupert’s fleet was at anchor in Kinsale harbour at the time.
