Synopsis

Situated in the south-west of Ireland, the port city of Cork is right on the very edge of Western Europe and has always been open to influences from Europe and the wider world. The amalgamation of these influences has created a vibrant and historic twenty-first century city. It is no surprise that, with such a wide range of influences, Cork has developed a very distinct culture. Corkonians have an immense variety of strong cultural traditions, from the city's history to its sports, commerce and education. Then there is its maritime heritage, the festivals, literature, art, music and the rich Cork accent.



In 'Celebrating Cork' local author Kieran McCarthy, highlights the wealth of the city's heritage and its citizens' diverse achievements. The book explores some of the reasons why Cork is so special in the hearts of Corkonians and its many visitors. It takes the reader through the familiar and lesser-known layers of Cork's importance in Atlantic Europe. Different chapters focus on the history of its port; the documents and maps which defined the city's sense of identity; the Arts and Crafts Movements, which can be viewed within the cityscape; its key institutions and charities; its engineering feats and perhaps why Cork is known for its rebel nature.



Illustrated throughout, 'Celebrating Cork' will be of great appeal to residents, visitors and all those with connections to the city. It will be a source of civic pride as well as a valuable contribution to local history.
