South Mall (An Meall Theas in Irish), is one of the main streets of Cork city, Ireland. It runs from Grand Parade in the west to Parnell Place in the east. Like St. Patrick's Street it is built over what was once a channel of the River Lee.
The street is known as the main centre of the Financial Services industry in Munster and also for being the location of a large number of legal offices.
Among the notable buildings on the street is the branch of AIB. This started on its current site as Provincial Bank in 1825, while the current building was constructed between 1863 and 1865.
