Cork City the third largest city in Ireland (after Dublin and Belfast) and is an important sea port. Cork was originally an island in the swampy estuary of the River Lee (the name Corcaigh means a marsh), and gradually climbed up the steep banks on either side. In modern times the river runs through Cork city in two main channels, so that you will experience the pleasure of viewing Cork while crossing one of its many bridges.
Many of Corks streets are built over channels where ships laid anchor over a century ago. Along the South Mall, you will see large gateways at street level, under steps leading to a higher main door. These were once boathouses, when merchants arrived at their warehouses by water.
There are many streets to explore in Cork and the local people will guide you on your travels. People from Cork are regarded as the most talkative of all the Irish. St. Finbarr is the founder and patron saint and was know as a very talkative person himself. He began a monastery in the seventh century where St. Finn Barre's Cathedral now stands, and it grew into an prosperous establishment. The monastery was plundered by Viking sea-pirates who raided and burned the original city, but returned in later years to settle and trade.
