Yesterday, I came across this hopper on the former offices of The Cork Examiner/Irish Examiner, now the Opera Lane Apartments.
Not alone do the hoppers note a date (presumably of the completion of the building) but also bears recognition to the King, Edward VII.
Having attended some talks at local Historical Societies, there has sometimes been comment as to the anti-Republican commentary in the Cork Examiner at the time of the War of Independence. There has been some counter argument that Victoria Barracks (as then, now Collins Barracks) had some veto on publication.
The hopper may provide some assistance to argument for one side of that debate.
Regardless, it is a nice hopper.
