State Visit


In the run-up to the visit by H.M. Queen Elizabeth II, Cork City Council and the English Market have commissioned a short promotional video to showcase the Market’s unique charms.

Filmed in the early days of May 2011 by Wildacre Productions, the video features clips of many of the traders and customers and captures the special architecture, atmosphere and character of this famous Cork institution that has traded across 4 centuries.

 Comments from market traders have included the following:

“The video does a great job in portraying the vibrancy and character of our Market,” 

Trader Tom Mulcahy.

“Many photographs have been taken and words written to describe the Market,” said trader Jerry Moynihan. “Seldom has our story been told better than by this video.”

Appropriately, Cork music legends Frank and Walters  provide the backing track  “Colours.”  to the video

The clip is on Youtube – “The English Market ” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9fPMSAyRsDo  and can be viewed on websites of the English Market and Cork City Council.
