St Kevin’s: Cork’s Abandoned Victorian Asylum

Spread the love

Every town has that one spooky abandoned building, the one that seems to naturally gather scary stories and urban legends. On the west side of Cork City, the great Victorian redbrick section of the Our Lady’s complex, St Kevin’s, has a real-life history of scandal and tragedy. In this episode, Cian takes a trip to the empty, fire-scarred structure that still stands above the Lee Valley onto the city. We’ll discuss the Victorian origins of the complex, the scandals that went on inside, and the reasons we’re drawn to places of tragedy.
