Cork Better Building Awards 2016

Tuesday 29 November 2016


The awards honour the best-designed and best-kept buildings in Cork City and suburbs, and are aimed at rewarding businesses and building care-takers for their efforts to protect, enhance and improve the city’s street scape. This significantly contributes to a public perception of the city as a vibrant and dynamic place to live, visit, invest and do business in.

The Cork Better Building Awards were presented by the Deputy Lord Mayor of Cork Cllr Fergal Dennehy and President of Cork Business Association Pat O Connell, at a lunch in The River Lee Hotel on Friday November 11. Neil Prendeville from Red FM was MC on the day.

We were absolutely delighted to accept the award for Best in Retail 2016  

Keane’s Jewellers on Oliver Plunkett Street is a late-Victorian, highly distinctive building with elaborate stucco work to the upper floors, decorative cast iron railings to the first floor cill level and intact, original, timber shopfront all maintained to an incredibly high standard. While its ground floor fenestration and entrance openings have been updated, it presents a vibrant and highly attractive shopfront onto Oliver Plunkett Street, winner of the Academy of Urbanism’s Great Street Award 2016.
