There is something about giovanni marconi in O'Donovan's Hotel in Clon from memory.

"Born of Irish-Italian Parentage, He was an electrical engineer and pioneer of the radio. In 1907 he was an unexpected visitor to Clonakilty when he mistakenly alighted from his train at Clonakilty Junction and took the train to Clonakilty, instead of proceeding directly on the Bantry line to Crookhaven where he was involved in a trans-Atlantic wireless station. As the train pulled into Clonakilty, he discovered his mistake and was directed to O'Donovans Hotel, where he refreshed himself and was provided with a covered car and driver and a splendid pair of horses with which to continue his journey."

Just after I checked out of the Imperial Hotel and then went to have a pint in their bar, I saw Ian Rush sitting at the bar with his Cork girlfriend, having a pint of the black stuff. This was on a Sunday, early afternoon, April 2018.

Now that's a good one.

Yeah Marconi's first trans Atlantic transmission was from Cork to Signal Hill in Newfoundland. Some history.

And don't forget, the last place that the Titanic ever saw was Cork.

Saw Chris Woods propping up the bar after a round of golf at Fota, a few years ago. At the time he was West Ham's goalkeeping coach. Was asked what his handicap was and replied, "8".
