PLANS are in the pipeline for a transformation of a landmark premises on Oliver Plunkett Street, previously in use as Brennan’s Cook Shop for many years.

Phoenix Street Social have lodged a planning application with Cork City Council seeking permission for the change of use of 7 Oliver Plunkett Street to open a wine bar and art gallery.
