Best city on the island of ireland


#41

Fecking Afghan style election ballots here, I wanted to vote for Cork but it wasn't on my ballot. I voted for Belfast instead, my favourite British city after London.

If you really cared you'd find a way


#43

is cork not a republic?


#44

Indeed it is, it's still in the Island of Ireland though.

By Universe standards the whole of earth is a spec.

Cork Taxi drivers drive around with the light 'on' which means "open for d'business' yet the pass you by all the time and point at something out the window as if I know the street they are pointing to.
Cork smells.

Yours etc,

I would interpret a City to be a town which has recieved an appropriate charter or legal instrument declaring it to be a city.

Cities in the Republic of Ireland are defined by the Local Government Act (2001). There are 5 such - Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick and Waterford. In addition there is the historic city of Kilkenny (which is legally a town).

Five of the cities trace their city status to historic royal charters, Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Waterford and Kilkenny. Galway was granted a charter in 1484 that, while not using the word 'city', did grant it authority to elect a mayor.

City status in Northern Ireland is bestowed by award of letters patent by the reigning monarch. Thare are 5 - Belfast, Londonderry (the charter name), Lisburn, Newry and Armagh.

I would like to take this oppurtunity to apologise to the cities I ommited; Lisburn, Newry and Armagh. No offence was intended

There is surely other inhabitated planets out there. It would be hard to believe that Earth was somehow the only place in a galaxy of infinite size that was capable of supporting life.

Now I'm definately not doing anymore work today. There is no point smiley
