Turners Cross

Turner's Cross is a suburb on the south side of Cork City. Largely residential, one of the key features of the area is the iconic Church of Chirst the King created by architect Barry Byrne and sculptor John Storrs. Turner's Cross is also home to Cork City FC, who play in Turner's Cross Stadium. Nearby there is also a rugby stadium, Musgrave Park, which is home to both Dolphin RFC and Sunday's Well RFC. Munster Rugby also play here. The local GAA club is Nemo Rangers despite them selling their ground and moving to a new location in Douglas during the boom. The main primary school in the area is Bunscoill Chríost Rí while there are two secondary schools, one for girls and one for boys. Turner's Cross takes its name from an important junction, where the road from Cork to Kinsale separated from one of the roads to Douglas and Carrigaline. The road to Douglas and Carrigaline is now the R851. The N27 dual-carriageway, which links Cork City Centre to Cork Airport passes through Turner's Cross. This handles the bulk of the traffic that used the road to Kinsale. Several bus routes serve Turner's Cross including the 203, 206, 291 and 226. There is a small selection of pubs and shops in the area as well as larger retail premises.
