Eoghan Ryan returned home to Cork City in 2014 after 8 years away. He got a pretty big shock walking around the city and wanted to do something about it. Alasdair FitzPatrick was a proud Corkman who also felt the city didn't celebrate its rich history enough. They had a shared vision to improve the visual appearance of the city whilst also telling its story a bit better. In particular, the historic heart of Cork City (North & South Main Street), was being forgotten about. They picked up a bucket and sponge and just got stuck in. They promised themselves they'd focus on action and that every project they would tackle would aim to promote Cork's history, heroes, and humour.
