Through the city passes the river Liffey. The beauty of the surrounding country, combined with its maritime position, give to the metropolis of Ireland a charm possessed by few cities. Dublin was founded by the Vikings around 988. It is now a metropolis with more than 1 million inhabitants. The name “Dubh Linn” means black water or black pond. According to the Greek astronomer Ptolemy, a city with the name “Eblana” stood on this spot.

The town later appears in history as Dubh-linn (Gaelic for “Black Pool”), the inhabitants of which won (AD291) a military victory over the armed forces of the kingdom of Leinster. Baile Átha Cliath, the present official name, is believed to have been applied to the settlement at a subsequent date. In Irish, the city is called “Baile Átha Cliath”. Baile means “city”, Atha is a wadable area and Cliath is the name of a system of wickerwork that was used to fortify the bottom of the wadable river.

The river Lee passes through Cork. Actually, the largest part of the city lies on an island in the estuary of the river. Cork’s harbor ranks among the largest natural harbors in the world. Cork also has an airport. The name Cork is derived for the gaelic “corgaigh”, which means “swamp area”, a clear reference to the situation of the city in the estuary of the river Lee.

Cork’s city rights go back to the 13th century. Evidence shows that there has been a monastery, founded by Saint Finbar in 1172. Through the ages, the city has been ravaged and rebuilt several times. During the Irish war for Independence, Cork was largely destroyed by a fire that was started by the British army. Cork used to have city walls, but only small parts of that wall still exist today. There are two large cathedrals : St. Mary’s Cathedral and St. Finbar’s Cathedral. As one of the only cities in Ireland Cork has a modern opera house. The centre of Cork can easily compete with Dublin or Belfast as far as architecture is concerned. The main shopping street (Patrick Street) has recently been renovated.
