A collection of some of Cork’s most interesting historical characters and incidents


In this collection, Michael Lenihan delves into the rich tapestry of Cork history to reveal some of its most bizarre events and strangest characters. From quack doctor Baron Spolasco, to the outlaw Airt Ó Laoghaire, Cork has seen some eccentric, wonderful and downright nasty people. With revelations of mass graves in Bishop Lucey Park and how Jonathan Swift was awarded the freedom of the city, and stories of the Gas Works' strike and the trams of the city, Hidden Cork opens the door on history, dumps the boring bits and brings to life the flow of time through the streets of Cork.

Accompanied by a selection of evocative pictures of olde Cork, Hidden Cork will make a great Christmas gift!
