  • I love the black hooded cloaks worn by the older Cork women. Meda Ryan, in 'The Day Michael Collins was Shot,' quotes an interview with John O'Connell, who accompanied Collins on his last visit to Cork. O'Connell had never seen a Cork cloak before and asked, 'What sort of nuns are these? Or what do they represent at all, they seem to be so plentiful?' A Corkman answered, 'It's the women who do the work here. That's the way the women dress, those cloaks are mighty handy, and are and have been used to hide many a revolver, and indeed many of those women wouldn't be above using one on you.'
