My great grandfather, William Hennessy (born 1868), was a stone mason in Cork city. His father and grandfather we're also stone masons in Cork. My mother says William helped to build Cashes.
When this photo was taken in 1927, Cash's was brand new (having been rebuilt after the burning of 1920). Today it is known a Brown Thomas, Cork. Got a connection to this building? Did your Ancestor work here? Got memories to share? Tell us in the comments below.

My ancestor, Timothy Harte and wife Hannah (nee Doyle) had their house at 15 Patrick St., Cork burnt in 1920 and a neighbouring drapery/dressmaking/millinery business run by his wife at 15. Is it nearby, and what has replaced it, please? Am I right unthinking it was Debenhams? If so, when was that erected? Thanks, Frances

I meant to say that the wife's business was at 14 Patrick Street. Does anyone know the name of this business, please?
