Clock House, Mallow

Following a gentle nudge from guliolopez yesterday, that he'd been "waiting patiently for a Cork photo for a while", I thought we might indulge him with another today. We don't want to get on the wrong side of anyone from the People's Republic! So, here's a gorgeous one of Mallow taken at about 4.55 on a very sunny day...

 

Thanks to Gerry Ward for filling in the blanks in our knowledge about the gorgeous Clock House:

"The Clock House was build around 1855, by Sir Denham Orlando Jephson. He was an amateur architect who is said to have designed this house after he had returned from an alpine holiday. The Clock was brought from the tower of the Old Mallow Castle. The bell was cast at Millerd Street, Cork. The bell tower became dangerous and was removed c1970, but was restored in 1995."

 

Date: Circa 1901??
