14 ghostly signs you've probably missed around Cork

History around every corner.

THE INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT and hashtag #CorkGhostSigns uncovers a different side to the city of Cork that might have passed people by before.

It collects loads of photos of signage from closed businesses around Cork, and it’s just wonderful:
