Oooh who ever said anything about Cork people, chips, and shoulders?
I think that is indeed the stereotypical depiction of Corkonians, and no doubt there is some truth in it – though I feel it has to do with a lot of ‘playing up’ to the expectations as well. That said, the same can be said for Dublin – I think it is particularly evident to anyone travelling to the Capital, not a resident. The difference is the historic or cultural association of such mentality is not as well promoted regarding Dubliners. But I suppose that’s straying from the point at hand and is a discussion for another day and thread..
…I am glad to see that someone, who has received brunt criticism has defended their position. Its easy, as this website well knows, for the media to spread whatever opinion they wish and in some cases without recompense. The reply I think breathes new dimensions into the perception of developers in Ireland – who are so usually generalised into a misconception (though that’s not to say it isn’t applicable to some). 🙂
