In an historic day for Cork City, on Friday, May 31 2019, the city increased fivefold in size and welcomed 85,000 new residents.
Due to the first extension of the city boundary in over 50 years, Ballincollig, Glanmire, Douglas, Frankfield, Grange, Blarney, Tower and Whites Cross became part of what is a ‘new city’.
Cork, which is earmarked as the fastest growing city in the country under the National Planning Framework, is now home to over 210,000 people. In this video, we welcome our new residents and look to a future of sustainable growth with communities at the centre.
