Funny to see this up on a wall in County Cork, the rebel county. Its Ironic that this would survive when Cork has more statues and memorials to victims of the 1916 rising and other republican figures, than all other counties. The town of Cobh (the Cove of Cork) got renamed by the English as Queenstown to celebrate the visit of Queen Victoria* in 1939, this dock yard built in 1932 got the same treatment by the owners. Like the posts boxes its funny to see reminders of the old enemy around the country.
