County Cork

With an area of 7,460 square kilometers County Cork is the largest county in Ireland and contains the third-largest city. Cork City is a bustling city delightfully situated on the river Lee. Part of Cork's success as a community is due to it's beautiful surroundings but the city owes much of its prosperity to the sea and the river with one of the best natural harbours in Europe.

The inland area of County Cork has many lively and bustling towns like Mallow, which is located on the banks of the Blackwater river and is one of Ireland's main coarse and game angling centres.
