Cork City in Ireland is the second largest city in Ireland, after Dublin. It has been described as the real capital of Ireland because Corkonians are damn proud of their city, according to my Irish colleague. Although, based on Wiki, “Corkonians often refer to the city as “the real capital” in reference to the city’s role as the centre of anti-treaty forces during the Irish Civil War”.
Anyhow, I would move to Cork in a jiffy if I am offered that chance. It feels more relaxed and Irish. I LOVE CORK.
