    The city people I worked with got a great kick out of us " bog Irish' , town meant Midleton , going up to the city was Cork. Although the style around Midleton is good now , a couple of years ago on a work night out , the city folk came down and they had a laugh. Going out in Midleton they said was a black pants and top and that was dressing up .

    They did a great job with Ballincollig after the barracks was sold, I'll give them that. But Bishopstown for example...what is there ?

    Born and bred in Cork. The Northside at that. Never did have the accent though, not sure why. Went to a plethora of primary schools in the city and county and for secondary was shipped off to boarding school in the county, which I detested. Live in the county these days. Cork's great, only place in Ireland that comes close is Galway City. Lived in Dublin years ago, wouldn't again! Tralee's not a bad spot, spent a year there. Limerick's ok, spent a year there. Waterford isn't very pleasant, spent some time there at WIT. Derry is ok if not a little depressing, spent couple of months there, pre-ceasefire days. Of them all Cork and Galway really do stand out as the best two cities in the country.

    Kerry people are gonna wanna throttle me for this, but here's a funny one:
    Did you hear about the Kerryman who moved to Cork?
    In moving he lowered the average IQ in both counties.

    Well, it's now regal in every way - they did give the queen a great welcome.....

    And remind me, did they used, at one stage, call Dublin people "jackeens"?

    A myriad of different things my dear protestant. A shopping centre, a hospital, CIT, UCC (practically), Leisureworld, bars, restaurants etc etc. Plus it's not far from town.
