Synagogueless Cork :)

More than a century of Jewish worship in Cork city centre has ended with the final prayer service in its synagogue.

The building on South Terrace has been in use since 1905, serving a Jewish community that first settled in the city in the 1880s. The dwindling numbers of recent years have been blamed for the closure, as there had been difficulty maintaining the minimum number of male adults needed for regular services.
