Lived in county Cork for a few years. Had to leave as the kids started getting the accent ;)



If a local calls you a Langer, it's NOT a compliment.

the famous Shandon Bells

The Bells of Shandon

by Francis Mahony

With deep affection,

And recollection,

I often think of

Those Shandon bells,

Whose sounds so wild would,

In the days of childhood,

Fling around my cradle

Their magic spells.

On this I ponder

Where'er I wander,

And thus grow fonder,

Sweet Cork, of thee;

With thy bells of Shandon,

That sound so grand on

The pleasant waters

Of the River Lee.

I've heard bells chiming

Full many a clime in,

Tolling sublime in

Cathedral shrine,

While at a glib rate

Brass tongues would vibrate--

But all their music

Spoke naught like thine;

For memory, dwelling

On each proud swelling

Of the belfry knelling

Its bold notes free,

Made the bells of Shandon

Sound far more grand on

The pleasant waters

Of the River Lee.

I've heard bells tolling

Old Adrian's Mole in,

Their thunder rolling

From the Vatican,

And cymbals glorious

Swinging uproarious

In the gorgeous turrets

Of Notre Dame;

But thy sounds were sweeter

Than the dome of Peter

Flings o'er the Tiber,

Pealing solemnly--

O, the bells of Shandon

Sound far more grand on

The pleasant waters

Of the River Lee.

There 's a bell in Moscow,

While on tower and kiosk O!

In Saint Sophia

The Turkman gets,

And loud in air

Calls men to prayer

From the tapering summits

Of tall minarets.

Such empty phantom

I freely grant them;

But there 's an anthem

More dear to me,--

'Tis the bells of Shandon,

That sound so grand on

The pleasant waters

Of the River Lee.

Unless you are a golfer called Bernard :D

more about Cork

"Cork (material)From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Untreated cork panelCork is an impermeable, buoyant material, a prime-subset of bark tissue that is harvested for commercial use primarily from Quercus suber (the Cork Oak), which is endemic to southwest Europe and northwest Africa. Cork is composed of suberin, a hydrophobic substance, and because of its impermeability, buoyancy, elasticity, and fire resistance, it is used in a variety of products, the most common of which is for wine stoppers. The montado landscape of Portugal produces approximately 50% of cork harvested annually worldwide, with Corticeira Amorim being the leading company in the industry.[1] Cork was examined microscopically by Robert Hooke, which led to his discovery and naming of the cell.[2]"

Well I'm at home after a very easy and pleasant drive home from Limerick, will be in Cork around mid-day Thursday all going well. Two days off so less stressful than today.

It's going to be difficult to top Limerick I have to warn all you Corkonians, the crowd was one of the best I've EVER witnessed in Ireland at a Bruce gig.
