Having lived in Cork for 10 years i´d give
Cork a 100% as a place to be. Galway was
always my favourite.

Corkonians stay close to home

True to the stereotype, Cork people really do feel that a day living outside the Rebel County is a day wasted.

According to the Census 2011 results, almost 75% of people in Cork City were born in the county, making it the city with the highest percentage of residents born in the county in which they live. Cork had the lowest proportion of residents born outside the county, with 25%; 10.1% born in another county and 15% born abroad.
