Shandon, Cork

The clock tower of St Anne's church containing the Bells of Shandon

Shandon (Irish: An Seandún meaning "the old fort") is a district in Cork city noted for The Bells of Shandon, a song celebrating the bells of the Church of St Anne written by Francis Sylvester Mahony under the pen name of "Father Prout".

Although not part of the original Hiberno-Norse settlement of Cork, it is one of the most historic districts of the city, avoiding the fires and floods experienced by the newer developments and older parts of the city.
