Cork University Hospital launched a new art collection on Thursday to coincide with their 40th-anniversary celebrations.

The new collection, on loan from Paul and Aileen Finucane, consists of 32 paintings, all of the view of the pier in Union Hall, West Cork.

The paintings were all painted by different artists and offer different perspectives of the same iconic view.
