Cork City and County Pevsner Architectural Guides

Cork City and County by Frank Keohane, has just been published. The guide published by Yale University press New Haven and London continues the series of academically rigorous but accessible guides to the country. Indeed Jonathan Mendes praises the Pevsner Guides commenting that ” The greatest endeavour of popular architecural scholarship in the world”.

This guide follows in the great tradition of scholarship as Frank Keohane proudly details some of the best architecture in Ireland if not the world. The book could be used as a gazetteer or a indeed as a comprehensive introduction to the architecture of the area. For professionals in architecture the guide is a brilliant academically rigorous compendium of the best that Cork City and environs has to offer.

A very useful feature is the glossary to architectural terms at the back of the book.

The book is available from: ( last time i checked this the SSL cert was out of date).
