Cork (city)

Cork is a seaport in the South West of Ireland. The principal city of County Cork and the third largest city of Ireland, its name is derived from the Gaelic corcaigh, meaning marsh, referring to its origins on an island in the estuary of the River Lee. Cork has a reputation for independence running from the times of Viking invasions to the Irish Civil War, which has given it the nickname of "Rebel Cork".
