Lusitania 2015

Lusitania 2015

2015 brings up the centenary anniversary of the sinking of RMS Lusitania, off the coast of the Old Head of Kinsale.

Anyone for Golf?

Gone are the heady days when people were happily paying hundreds of euro for the pleasure of pulling their hair out in frustration, at the frequent downpours and returning red faced and windswept 4 hours later to the club house. Oh what a funny game golf is, destined to enslave us (as witnessed by many golf widows) or drive us […]

Learn English in Cork

Cork has long been a centre of learning. In fact UCC (University College Cork) has been ranked amongst the top university campuses in the world, which is very significant considering the relatively small population of Cork. Every year our city and town squares and streets seem to spill over with the arrival of foreign students eager to learn English. There […]

Where everybody knows your name

  Let’s face it, there’s always something happening in  Cork. The thing is that it’s always something new. That’s the difference between Cork and other Irish cities. We’re a creative bunch and we like to show it. So while the venue may have the same name, it’s never the same night twice.  I might be biased but I think we […]

‘If you go down to the woods today, your sure of a big surprise’…. well that was certainly the case yesterday at the Select Hotel’s Teddy Bears Picnic in Fota House in Cork.

As a country we are well used to the saying, ‘getting four seasons in a day’ whether that is wind, rain, clouds, hail and to […]

Cork Style is always in Fashion

On entering Joan’s premises I went from a nervous feeling to that of meeting an old friend in a matter of moments.  It’s taking the easy option to say that Joan has a lovely manner that puts you at your ease. The reality is that Joan is a realist; she is wise, willing to share her knowledge and infinitely warm. In […]

53 Things that make Cork Great

Being the largest county and second biggest city, Cork as you would expect by its size would have a lot to offer. When you throw in the second largest natural harbour in world, 1400Km’s of coastline, 9 mountain ranges, 3 peninsulas and 29 islands, you only start to get a sense that it will take you more than a long […]

I’d like to teach the world to sing….

I had no idea what to expect. A taxi brought me to the Nordic Business Park and after that anything could happen. A little buzzer at the door had a sign saying ‘Please ring. If I don’t answer it’s because we’re recording’. I was busy picturing myself into a studio Live-Aid moment, complete with finger tips to my headphones when […]

Ireland’s Gourmet Riviera

We all know of the land of milk and honey that is generally associated with stories from the bible. Little do people know that while Moses was a great leader and preacher, he was terrible at directions and mistakenly confused Israel with Ireland! That said many poets and storytellers have also described Ireland as a land overflowing with agricultural riches […]
