Good news: prints of popular Cork pub restocked after sell-out 

Crowds watched the demolition of The Sextant Bar, Cork last month to make way for a 25 storey residential 'build to rent' scheme.

A city center shop selling prints of the recently demolished The Sextant pub has restocked the popular offering following a sell-out in early September.

Unbound is a local quirky gift shop in Cork city with a strong emphasis on sustainable, fair trade and positive products.

The store on Bridge Street sold out of the print by artist Jill Cotter of CorkIDoodleDo after what was a sad day for many in the city on the night of August 28 as demolition began on The Sextant and Cork lost one of its most loved pubs.

Pints were last poured at the pub on Albert Quay in February 2019 after more than a century in existence.

The building was demolished along with the two-storey Carey Tool Hire building in order to make room for a skyscraper which is set to change the skyline of Cork.

An Bord Pleanála granted permission for a 201 build-to-rent apartments back in February.

It will see the construction of 93 one-bed apartments, 104 two-bed apartments and four three-bed apartments.

Although The Sextant is not listed as a protected building, the renovation of two protected structures on the street forms part of the project with the two-storey former Cork, Blackrock and Passage Railway Offices, and the adjoining single-storey former Blackrock and Passage Railway Terminus Ticket Office, retained.

The popular prints can be bought in store or online at www.unbound.ie.
