Coal Quay Shawlie - (Print)
The 'shawlies' of Cork City, iconic women of Cork's social history, would earn a living selling goods on public streets, most notably on the Coal Quay. After being limited in where they could sell their produce by regulations introduced by the nascent Irish Free State and the city authorities in 1926, the shawlies were effectively forced out of existence. To this day they are still revered by Corkonians and are remembered each year at the annual Coal Quay festival on Cornmarket St.
