Thanks for all your help.
If I have understood all the research, it looks as if it has now been demolished and a new apartment block built on the site.

Tony F :-)

Quite an ugly apartment block too  8)
You may have seen my earlier message on the thread about my Great Grandfather also being born in 117. What a coincidence.

Tony, Sluggy,
 I suggest you could look at the Irish census records for the property to get an idea of the living conditions at the time, if it's of interest,
 incidentally in 1911 census, Mr Millis and his family have moved to another location.
 
The property was approx under the h a in old youghal road in the posted since removed map (if you can legally view).

As regards the hotel and the block etc, it was demolished and a cinema was built in 1919/20 called the Bellevue however that was short-lived and was turned into a dance hall i believe circa 1928, but this closed and the Cameo cinema opened 1964 but was closed circa 1990, was demolished and the present form built. I suspect that 117 (177) was demolished in the original build.
present day view available on google maps next door to Belle Vue bar 175.

How did you do that direct link KG.
I contacted GeoHive about not being able to do direct links as we could on the old MapViewer and they said they were working on it, that was ages ago and no joy yet.
What are you using, please?

Hi Sinann,

I discovered a way to create a link to a map on GeoHive, but it was forever loading without bringing up the map. I e-mailed them with my step-by-step procedure last Monday and asked if they could fix it. An employee from OSi, Business & Marketing e-mailed back with this quote:
“This item has now been resolved and you will now be able to view your webmap in GeoHive.”

Here’s how to do it:
•   Open Geohive http://map.geohive.ie/mapviewer.html
•   In Base Information & mapping (on left) choose your map
•   Enter your place of search (in search box at top) let’s say Barrackton, click and then click on AN POST, Barrackton Post Office, 15 Military Road
•   Up comes the map, adjust the size and remove the little box
•   Click on ‘Share’ in top left, then click Disc icon (Save)
•   A box comes up – Add title and description (anything!), then ‘Save Map’
•   Gives link to webmap, right click it and copy address

Hello

What a coincidence my x3great Aunt  gave birth to a Mary Hannan in 118 Barrackton in july 1883

My grandfather as born at 117 Barrackton, Cork in 1884.
His father was a Corporal in the 12 Regiment of Foot based at the nearby Victoria Garrison in Cork.

Whilst I have found several references to it being "off" Military Road, does the street still exist and can anyone locate it for me.

All help appreciated
Best regards, Tony
