HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT ... A historic cannon on Grand Parade 💥💣This humble piece of street furniture is actually a historic artefact, thought to date to the famous Siege of Cork in 1690 where it would have been used at Elizabeth Fort to defend against the invading army of William of Orange. Later, the cannon was moved to Grand Parade and used as a mooring for ships as this street was then a river channel . In more recent times, the cannon was used by schoolchildren for tying one end of their skipping ropes. Next time you walk along Grand Parade, take a moment to find the cannon which you may mistake as a simple bollard!#storiesfromstpeters

I'm sure I've read somewhere that the second of the pair is still situated in Elizabeth Fort??

Always thought it had been fired by the Williamites at the nearby city walls, part of which can be seen in nearby Bishop Lucey Park.

I knew it was used as mooring alright - does anyone know if there are any pics/sketches/paintings of Cork where the river was on Grand Parade? I've heard about it my whole life, but find it impossible to visualise.

It's put in place to tie up boats originally now used as a marker spot for the masonic Lodge.

2 more ‘repurposed ‘ canon adorning our city! Who knows where?

Didnt know that..very interesting thank you 👍

It could do with a bit of conservation

Also used to tie the Goat that broke loose on the Grand Parade. 🐕🐕😁😁

Pity it's not marked in some way
