At Sunday's Well in Cork City, visit the Cork City Gaol Heritage Centre, which houses two special family attractions at the same location: a historic jail, and a radio museum.

Upon entering the Heritage Centre, get a cassette player and tape for your own walking tour of this 19th Century jail, which details life inside and outside prison walls in Cork. There are amazingly lifelife figures, furnished cells, sound effects, and spectacular audio visual.

As you tour the second floor of the gaol, and move from the prisoners cells through the doorway, enter a room on the left, the Warden's rest room, where prison guards spend their time playing cards. Imagine a fire in the fireplace, and sounds of prisoners walking thru the exercise yard below.

In the room, there is a low bed on the right, where the guards can catch a nap or a short sleep. Under the foot of the bed, you can find what you're looking for.

Please ensure that no one sees you remove or replace the box. Wait until the coast is clear of prisoners, guards, or visitors.

After replacing the box, continue the tour and enjoy both the gaol and the radio museum, which shows a restored 6CK Radio Studio, and various antique radio equipment.
