Official tourism website for Cork, Ireland

Ireland is the most centralised country in the European Union with only very limited power devolved to local government in the form of city and county councils. As a result, many Corkonians feel strongly about the inability of their own politicians to make decisions in the best interests of Cork. The campaign to severely limit or end Dublin rule entirely has begun.

It's also great craic winding up people from other counties about wanting Cork to break away from the rest of Republic of Ireland!

Never miss an event or new attraction in Cork.
