WATCH: Breathtaking new drone footage offers cinematic views of Cork city centre
Look closely and you might even see your house.
Stunning new drone footage of Cork city centre shines a cinematic light on one of the oldest parts of Cork.
Created by local filmmaker Marcelo Becher, the aerial view entitled ‘Cork – Take me to Church’ sweeps upriver from the Nagle Footbridge on Sullivan’s Quay to the South Gate Bridge, taking in the vast stone walls of Elizabeth Fort on Barrack Street and hundreds of rooftops on all sides.
Soaring towards Saint Fin Barre’s Cathedral, built in 1735, the footage captures the gothic structure in all its glory, bathed in golden sunshine and surrounded by lush green trees and gardens.
It would bring a tear to your eye, so it would.
“I live in Cork and recently started to make some short-films around the city.” Marcelo told Yay Cork.
“My most recent was made in the city centre with my drone, featuring mostly the Saint Fin Barre’s Cathedral. I’ve found that the result came up nice, and it would be good to gift the city, and of course, the Corkonians.”
We can’t think of a more lovely gesture.
