County Cork is a large county in south-western Ireland, in the province of Munster. It is largely rural, with upland scenery and an indented coastline with many bays and inlets. It contains the city of Cork (the second largest city in the Republic and the third largest in all Ireland), and the towns of Youghal (pronounced Yawl), Cobh (pronounced Cove), Mallow, Bantry, and Skibereen. The last of these is renowned for its newspaper, the Skibereen Eagle, which once famously warned an oppressive Russian Tsar that 'the Skibereen Eagle had its eye on him'.
