Gerard was an excellent guide/historian! We had been to Cork before and wanted something different this visit. Gerard accommodated our wish. First off was a ride through the countryside to Kensale. Our time was spent shopping, visiting a Pub for a pint, and brief stop at the city's museum. The "Remembrance Garden" for the 9-11 firefighters who lost there lives should be included on any tour to the area. The history of Michael Collins and Ireland's freedom fight was most enlightening. A great day!
