There's a lot of Cork (pronounced CArk ) AO'ers on here I'd say its a good idea, and we haven't had a meet in Cork yet either....

The first AO Ireland meet was in Cork a few years ago and most of the Healy Pass ( all of the good bit ) is in Co. Cork so technically you've been to an AO meet in Cork last year



Anyway ye all know Cork is the Real Capital, ye just can't admit it

My dad was SB in the 70's so I grew up around Swansea Docks and on the Inisfalen. Crossed many a time inc. on our Honeymoon. Rough crossing

the most famous thing in Cork is the flashing red light. I asked a garda what to do if I see another one, he had no idea. I figured since then it probably means you have to give way to cars coming from a flashing amber...

Is it cheaper to sail to Roslare, you can easily get from Roslare to Cork in less than 2 hours...
