Cork Food Web imagines a network of community gardens, allotments, urban and rural farms and food parks all over Cork city and county run autonomously by local communities and linked by the shared need to feed ourselves and mind our environment. The website is a ‘social networking site’ so allows users to create their own profile, get to know each other and form groups. In just a few months of existence membership has grown to 154, with members from the city and all across Cork county forming online interest groups, exchanging information and skills and creating events together. read full story / add a comment

Cork Lord Mayor Brian Berminghan (Blueshirt Party) has organised a fun evening in remembrance of Irishmen deluded into fighting for the British Empire. They got sense after being ordered to stop machine gun bullets and after the 1916 Rising. Cllr Birmingham has yet to get his. Hopefully this disgrace to the 'rebel' county will be answered, and soon.
