CANADIAN software company OpenText has announced a major expansion of its Irish operations with the establishment of a new Global Customer Support Centre in Cork, with the creation of 105 skilled jobs but the move will see the company leave its West Cork base where it currently employs 15 people at the West Cork Technology Park in Clonakilty.

This year’s fair will take place at the Gresham Metropole Hotel on MacCurtain Street in the city, on Saturday 30th August, from 11am to 4pm, with thousands of out of print, interesting and collectable books on all subjects,
THIS Christmas will be one to remember for Clonakilty’s Yvonne Lehane who got the perfect Festive surprise on a recent visit to the Tír na Nollag “faery village”, part of Cork city’s “Glow” Christmas festival. Love was in the air as Yvonne’s boyfriend Damien Cuffe from meticulously made preparations for a surprise proposal.
by Striker The visit of West Ham to Turner’s Cross on Sunday last was surely one of the red letter days for the Cork City club, who only last Friday evening gave one of the displays of the current season to dispose of Sligo Rovers, who have been a leading club in the League of Ireland for a few years now, with the victory being a just reward for
WEST Cork looks set to have a dedicated stall in Cork’s famous English Market thanks to the efforts of local fundraisers. So far 82 people have pledged €100 each towards setting up the “Fresh from West Cork” stall which organiser Walter Ryan Purcell described as “absolutely incredible”.
BALLYDEHOB’S own superman, endurance swimmer Steve Redmond was honoured by no less than the Lord Mayor of Cork recently with a special Civic Reception held in his honour at Cork City Hall.
by Owen Thornhill I travelled up to Tallaght Stadium with about 300 fellow Cork City faithful fans and in good voice cheered on the team but with Daryl Horgan getting a point from six yards out and City hitting the post, missed chances would come back to bite us. Two second-half goals put the reigning league champions and record winning FAI cup holders into the quarterfinals where they
by Owen Thornhill Cork City traveled to the Bellfield Bowl to face UCD after a defeat to St. Pats the previous Monday and things didn’t get much better as the lowly students who lie in tenth spot in the league beat Cork 3-1.
Owen Thornhill Cork City 0 – 1 St Patrick’s Athletic SO a end to Cork city’s unbeaten spell losing to a St Patricks athletic side just back from their Europa league tie with Bundesliga side Hannover 96 from Thursday last week, which is why the match was on a Monday night instead of the normal Friday night.
by Owen Thornhill Sligo Rovers 2 – 2 Cork City After the weekend off Cork City had a very busy week ahead facing them. I travelled to Sligo to see the Rebel Army take a surprise lead against the run of play after just seven minutes as Ian Turner counter-attacked. He pulled inside passing the Sligo left back to take a shot which took a deflection off one of the
by Owen Thornhill SHAMROCK Rovers v Cork City will be the standout tie in the third round of the FAI Cup as Cork visit the champions at Tallaght Stadium.
Owen Thornhill A disappointing result for the Rebel Army who were by far the more dominant team for the entire game and should have had more than the one goal to their name.
CORK City progress after a very shaky first 30min where Athlone were well on top and should have been more than 1-0 up. But when City got going there was no stopping them.
Owen Thornhill NO lack of excitement following Cork City with a 4-2 win over UCD last Friday night. A penalty to each side, both harsh in my view and a goal for city which was just over the line and a tight call for the ref.
Owen Thornhill BEFORE the game I would have been delighted with a draw away to a undefeated side who are second in the league considering Cork City’s poor start to the season but having a penalty to take the lead with 15 minutes to go, we could have come away with all three points. Tadgh Purcell’s penalty was straight down the middle with little power and was easily saved, anyway
Cork City 3 Dundalk 2 Limerick 1 Cork City 0 FIRST of all Friday night, a game played under torrential rain, but the pitch held together very well. The game started frantically with Cork City getting the opener after just three minutes with a volley by Davin O’Neill.
by Owen Thornhill Déjà vu anyone? Yes the same result as won the first division title for Cork City last October and in a similar manner, 1-1 going into the last five minutes of play, a cross from the left wing and a headed goal by a City striker to win the game, be it Vinny Sullivan this time as Graham Cummins has gone.
Owen Thornhill Another late loss. Danny North’s 83min goal denied Cork City a valuable point at home. Maybe if Colin Healy was on the pitch at the time it may not have happened but he was getting a cut covered up on the sideline. Sligo crossed it into the box and it looked like Dan Murray would just clear it but he miss-kicked the ball and it bounced into the
Cork City 5 Wexford Youths 1 by Owen Thornhill A morale boosting league cup win with five different scorers for the Rebel Army including a first goal for Tadgh Purcell who had been struggling up until last night. Daryl Horgan got the first goal into the shed end after 23 minutes with a curling left footed shot past the keeper. Spillane passed a few players before getting a rasping shot
by Owen Thornhill Derry City 2 Cork City 0 There were few positives to take from this game other than Daryl Horgan coming close by hitting the crossbar and that Cork City have played two of last season’s top three and have a few easier games to pick up some points ahead. But before City get back to League action there is a little matter of the EA Sports Cup/League
by Owen Thornill UCD 1 – 0 Cork City DESPITE a few good signings and a big away support behind the Rebel Army the players just could not score and replacing Cummins has not gone so well. Tadgh Purcell started but from all accounts was overweight and rusty. City had three regulars out injured including Davin O’Neill who you would normally expect to get a few goals over a season.
