Sounds Good

We are a twenty–five minute drive from Cork City, five minutes from Macroom and eleven hours and forty minutes from Detroit, Michigan.

The final few minutes drive into rural Cork can be something of a trial if you are not generally used to anything less than an eight–lane highway — do remember to keep to the left and watch out for sight–seeing cows.

His Master’s Voice

Francis Barraud sold a modified version of his painting of his deceased brother’s jack russell terrier, Nipper, listening to a phonograph to The Gramophone Company for £50 sterling in 1899. A further £50 was paid for copyright on the title — His Late Master’s Voice — a shortened version of which eventually became the Company’s slogan and later its tradename.
