    Default Cork takes all 10 places in Lonely Planet Top Places to Visit list

    Hardly a surprise.

    Here is part of the reason -



    There's only one Kino.

    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.

    Cork is a dump. Besides Pana, the rest of the city center looks like a grottier, more run down, version of the 1950's. The river front is a national disgrace.

    Kerry is just the western most expanse of Greater Corkonia.
