There is a ritual I observe when I visit Cork city. I treat myself to a coffee in the English Market. I use it as a decompression chamber, so I can syncronise my pace to the rythem of the city and it’s people. It takes about three quarters of an hour for the process to exercise the tension and return me to the world in human form. Now thanks to a new book, published by Collins Press, the convertion time may be reduced. Entitled Serving a City: The Story of Cork’s English Market, the 264 page volume by brothers Diarmuid and Donal O’Driscoll traces the development of the oldest food market on the island from it’s origins in 1788.
