After a lighthearted laugh and a joke about the fact that a few ol' dolls from Cork were allegedly getting their kit off on the site, we had a huge response by e-mail appealling (desperately in some cases!) for us to actually try to get the real thing together. To our amazement soon after we had an e-mail from a former Miss Cork Contestant, Ciara Ahern who is a big PeoplesRepublicOfCork fan. She forwarded us her "up-front" portfollio and has kindly given us permission to use some of it....mmm mmm mmm!
Legal teams and unregistered players seemed to get more attention this season than happenings on the field. The Beautiful Game Irish-style lurched from one crisis to the next as football took a back seat to unwelcome shenanigans off the park. Gareth Williams explains why this season's Eircom League has turned into a farce. (Plus you might see your bulb in the Shed!)
Why doesn't every Corkonian want to go and support Cork City? Is it the damp and dreary weather or the dull and miserable promotion of the club that's keeping the football-loving loyal Corkonian away from Turner's Cross? Why isn't Patsy Freyne's private life (of which we know absolutely nothing) the media-fodder it would undoubtedly be elsewhere in Europe? A self- confessed fair-weather supporter makes some suggestions on how CCFC could get more rebels in through the gate.
Cork girls are finally starting to cast aside their inhibitions as we bring you an intimate interview and raunchy photo shoot with a delightful selection of of Cork's finest model hopefuls compliments of Assets Model Agency. They want you the Good Citizens of Cork to support these girls all the way. Angles and Lapellos eat your heart out ! It's not what your county can do for you...see if you know any of them !
Deep House or Hip Hop? Main Room or Back Bar? For years this conflict has plagued Cork nightlife, often spilling over into violence and tragedy. PeoplesRepublicOfCork takes a look at what's possibly the city's second greatest divide (after Northside versus Southside, obviously).
Releasing music independently has it's advantages but the fight and commitment needed to do so is becoming increasingly more difficult as big record labels flex their commercial muscles. SEMI, yet another great Cork band forced into resignation, found out the hard way.
Starved of goals, a string of shameful results in the Eircom League, Ollie Cahill's bizarre FREE transfer to Shels and having crashed out of the cup at home to First Division Limerick FC, Gareth Williams tries to make sense of the Liam Murphy brigade.
...surprising RedFM with a neat left hook to the jaw, 96FM pulled out his penknife and slashed RedFM's arm only to find RedFM had already stuck a bottle in 96's neck. Then 2FM came around the corner with a couple of his mates ready to rumble...
As the Eircom league season wraps up with only one home game left Cork City F.C. look set to be left out of European action next season for the first time in 7 years. Some are passionate about changing things at Turners Cross claiming they want the best for the club, other might say they've cast aside their loyalty...
Cork's Cobh Ramblers are rooted to the bottom of the Eircom League First division. They are penniless and starved of supporters. Something has to be done to save the precious Cork club that gave Irish captain Roy Keane his first break. Gareth Williams goes sniffing.
