Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Incredible monument to General Tom Barry and his West Cork flying column for their contribution to Ireland's freedom. Their bravery, courage and commitment will be forever remembered.

    This monument was not the traditionl war memorial usually erected in towns to remember their dead soldiers from WW I and II. Instead, it was a memorial to commemorate IRA freedom fighters from the 1798 rebellion whose leader had been Wolte Tone. His statue appeared at one corner of the memorial and showed him dressed in civilian clothes. The plaque made the purpose of this memorial, erected in 1906, quite clear - to encourage others to keep fighting for Irish independence. Wolfe Tone is remembered as the founder of the IRA and a patriot.

    The memorial is located at the foot of Grand Parade and South Mall street (along the river) - just a short walk from the English Market. Around the memorial were multitiered planters filled with eye catching colorful petunias. A good photo stop.

    Due to the passing last year of a dear relative in our family, my sister and I had reason to spend time recently in the Examiner Office, Cork in order to organise a first anniversary notice and acknowledgement for the papers. We were new to this, anxious to get everything perfect and found the whole process emotionally draining. However, we were so lucky to come across Sharon to help us. She was so warm, patient, empathetic and professional. A pleasure to deal with.
