A reason to Love Cork

City Quarter, Cork
I love Cork and I am very patriotic about my home town, and events on Saturday made me love it even more. At the weekend my boyfriend was up from Kerry and he stayed around town on Saturday and we met up for lunch. At all times I was with him in town we were holding hands. Did we get a reaction? No

Russ and I

In fact most people registered no reaction especially Irish people. A few people stared and in fact two girls said “eww gays” and then burst out laughing! This is a major reason why I love Cork. I never get hassle about being gay or holding hands with guys. I have gotten hassle in other places, notable Dublin and Koeln, where I was shouted at, but it comes with the territory. (‘Queer’ in Dublin and ‘Schwule’ in Koeln).

Lots of foreign people ask me what it is like to be gay in Ireland and I must say being gay in Cork is grand as most Cork people don’t give a toss! Which is also an attitude I have!

So I LOVE Cork!

Well this was mentioned on gaycork.com and I found the above video on youtube looks like a fantastic idea, it the long run i think it cause problems for flooding as land reclamations always do im my opinion.
