You made the point, clearly you made it. this was all I wanted to clear up with him. Some people from Cork do have an over tendancy to exaggerate about the city….

How it has 300,000:rolleyes: 3/4 quarter of the county, yet its still the greater cork:D

Greater Dublin doesn’t take in all of North Dublin….It takes the suburbs that’s sprawls intot the borders Kildare, Meath and North Wicklow.

The bullshit is all that annoys me about this rant from Mickydoc’s. He’s been corrected a few times by a few people on the true figures for the cities. Like Cork having 189,000 in the census. He would state 200.000. Limerick almost 91,000 he would state 90,000. If your gonna post facts, post’s the facts and not the bullshit.:)

How have I been corrected. I have posted the figures from the census. Limerick City has a population of 51,000, and 89,000 with the suburbs. How do you arrive at the greater population figure. How far out does that go?

Most of the population of County Cork is in the Cork harbour region. This area is approximately a 20 mile radius from the City of Cork. This area does have a population in excess of 300,000.

Here is a fact – both Cork and Limerick are tiny provincial towns in the European context.

Both towns and their greater populations will now struggle to remain at their existing populations as emigration will replace immigration.
