ok…… Limwerick is more complex, because of high rates, no space in it’s existing boundary, and quite right;y as you said, it’s sprawling into three other counties. Cork does not have this problem. in fact some of Cork’s suburbs are still in it’s boundary.

You mention that Greater Cork… is over 250,000. You should have mentioned Hinterland. Limerick’s hinterland reaches 200,000. No I mean Greater Cork, as in all of the suburbs and the city, not some exaggerated population area. The 250,000 includes Cork, Glanmire, Douglas, Rochestown, Ballincollig, Carrigaline. It does not include Midleton, Carrigtuohill, Blarney, Tower, Cobh, Passage, Midleton.
Cork’s hinterland is closer to 350,000. Limerick’s hinterland is 120,000. Galway’s hinterland is 90,000. Where you get a figure of 200,000 for Limerick is a question only you can answer.
