You love to see it.
St Patrick Street received a fabulous Pride makeover last night; the city’s first rainbow crosswalk is now in place outside Dunnes Stores.
The colourful addition, a symbol of equality for the LGBTQ+ community, was installed by Cork City Council in collaboration with The Cork Pride Festival.
