Description

The Quay Co-op opened on Sullivan's Quay in Cork in May 1982. The Quay Co-op was established as a Workers’ Co-operative which brought together gay men and lesbians, women’s groups, left-wing organisations, environmental and anti-nuclear groups. The building housed a cafe, bookshop, food co-op, women’s place and meeting rooms which were used by various ‘ alternative’ groups in the city.
