Cork. Uzbek word for hellhole.
I think a better question is why apartments were built there in the first place
20 mins outside Cork city, surrounded by fields

They’re not derelict apartments, they’re unfinished apartments.
Who owns them?
The random empty bits of land get to me as well as empty houses. Like the bit of fenced off gravel and weeds at the corner of Leeson St & Appian Way!

They’re everywhere. Breaks my heart.
