Cork city takes its name from the marshy land on the banks of the River Lee - the Irish form of its name means marsh - on which St. Finbarr founded a monastery around AD 650. The city's narrow alleys, waterways and Georgian architecture give it a distinctly Continental feel.

Most Americans with Irish roots love to hear about the homeland. I am not an exception. Please tell us all you feel up to sharing. And if there is a place here you want to learn about I am sure someone will share. Thanks.

I have Irish roots in Larne, and would love to hear about the homeland.
