Douglas Street is alive with vibrant businesses and people, so it’s not a bad spot to be.
I’m passionate about the street. I spoke to RedFM’s Red Business Podcast with Jonathan Healy recently about the importance of working in harmony with our natural surroundings and encouraging people to shop and stay local.
We’re lucky with our local media also, they’re always good to support us.
The Cork Flower Studio was founded by my sister Eavan in 2007 and following years of travelling all over, I finally came home in 2010 and joined her. We expanded to our current premises with an Irish Design gallery and a take away coffee bar and we’ve been growing ever since. Douglas Street is at the heart of it all. It’s a vibrant ‘Village in the City’ and we love it here!
It’s a really social group and we go for coffee and cake afterwards!
I run regularly with my friend/motivator Therese and I do a few classes a week in The Squad (best gym in Cork!).
