County Cork in Munster is Ireland’s largest county, stretching from Waterford out into the Atlantic Ocean via its many peninsulas. These long peninsulas provide an idyllic coastal region, littered with seaside towns and the start of the infamous Wild Atlantic Way. Cork is fondly known as ‘The Rebel County’, a slogan that Corkonians have embraced to the fullest. Many tribute the slogan to Irish revolutionary and Corkonian Michael Collins, but it dates back much further to a failed rebellion in the 15th century. Cork is closely linked to St. Patrick, with the city’s main thoroughfare named after the saint, and St. Patrick’s saltire (a white flag with a red diagonal cross) featured on Cork City’s crest, waving boldly from two adjacent castles. This flag pays note to St Patrick’s satire, but it sits darkened on a bright red plain.
