Can anybody tell me how many cities in ireland...
Belfast and Dublin the rest are large towns if you go by population. Also depends what you call a city - Kilkenny and Armagh are termed cities for ecclesiastical reasons, I think, and ffs even Newry is now called a city when it's just a sprawling kip of a town.
Cork, Limerick, Galway...
How long is a piece of string?
Seriously, is it 20 cm?
According to the local government act, there are 5 cities, which have city councils. They are Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick and Waterford. Kilkenny is allowed to call itself a city because of it, but does not have the same powers as the main ones.
Lisburn, Derry, Newry, Belfast, Dublin, Kilkenny, Waterford, Cork, Galway Limerick I think all are cities. I know the 2 new Northern ones were as a result of 50 years of the Queen Elizabeth 2 back in 03, there were several ones also on the UK mainland.
Some residents of a certain County Galway TOWN, insist on calling it the smallest city in the world.
Kilkenny was once the CAPITAL of Ireland!!!!
The old saying is Kilkenny was,Dublin is and Cork will!!!!!!
how is this a history or heritage question?
Perhaps he is wondering how many cities have received charters as a city, which would be a legitimate historical question. He hasn't articulated this well, if this is the question.
More challenging would be a list of all cities and towns in Ireland which have been given charters in the past 1300 years, and the dates of these charters of course. It's doable, but time-consuming.
Sounds more like a Junior Cert question.
OP has a day to clarify historical and/or heritage aspects, or thread gets locked.
twice the length of half of it!
This question is boring at this stage as one fool will always bring it up, and then three arguements popup: There is 5 (Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick, Waterford), There is 6 (Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick, Waterford, Kilkenny) and then someone says "None cause there all tiny, like". 1 hour later everyone is argueing and it gets locked.
The answer is 7 (Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick, Waterford, Kilkenny and Cashel)
That would be interesting indeed.
Maybe thread could be turned into a thread based on the above comment by Rebelheart? Otherwise please lock before this descends into madness.
