Finally the world is copping on to what Cork people have always known.

Montenotte and St.Lukes they might attract your looks
Barrack Street, Evergreen and sweet Blackpool
The courthouse and the college
They teach different sorts of knowledge
And still the half of Cork you have not seen.

Kerry is just the western most expanse of Greater Corkonia.

Best Holiday we had in years was this year in Cork. Apart from the odd building collapsing onto the street the holiday was very eventful. :eek:

Cobh was another highlight as well. Same for Kinsale.

At Fota Island I took the best photograph of my life:

does this mean we will be getting armies of stag and hen parties from the mainland that temple bar would normally be getting?
wonderful.

i'm sure it will bring in more than that though.
hope people go a bit further afield than the pubs in town.
Head west.
good news.

I always enjoy a visit to Cork City, and it's a great base for exploring the beauty of the South West.

Whenever I'm down that way, I usually include a quiet visit to Rory Gallagher's grave - happy/sad memories!!

Congratulations to Cork!

Up The Langers! :D

Hi,
You shouldn't use that word. Only in rare uber-familiar conversation can it be deemed an affectionate term.
It is not a generic term for people from Cork.
I'm not giving out, just pointing out. Spent 2 years in Dublin trying not to be offended and have pulled a few people aside to have a word in their ear when they were in Cork to prevent actual bodily harm.

You'd be surprised. Cork isn't a Ryanair hub so we have surprisingly few gangs of stags or hens crawling the pubs. It's more of a back-packer place really. Hence the lonely planet guide maybe.

We are humbled that you think so highly of us. In fact, you Corkmen were so impressed with us you offered us a gift of the Sam Maguire cup this year. Praise indeed! ;)
