This gave us the warm and fuzzies this morning.
A Dublin author has tweeted an ode to his new home of Cork and it’s the sweetest thing you’ll read today.
Scott de Buitléir, who was born in London and raised in the Irish capital, is loving life in the Rebel County so much that he decided to share it with the world.
The writer and poet published an 11-post list entitled ‘A Dubliner’s appreciation of Cork – A Thread’ and honestly, it would fill you with pride.
First on the list? The city
“Cork City is ideal for an aimless stroll around.” says Scott.
“From Opera Lane shopping, to French Church Street and Washington Street’s restaurants, to the architecture in the court buildings, to the Crawford Gallery. Yes, Cork is small and compact, but it offers a lot.”

It has been just over 2 and a half years since I’ve moved to Cork, and I love it to bits. Here’s why. pic.twitter.com/GMaLpicA9T

Next up: The accent
“Sweet Jesus, the accent is amazing and just designed to make you smile. Granted, there were times where I couldn’t figure out were some people speaking English, Irish, or just pure Cark like, but I love the music of the accent here.”
Most importantly: The talent
“Sorry not sorry,” says Scott. “Cork punches well above its weight when it comes to hot men. Be it GAA fitness regimes or just good genes, but many a fine gent can be found Leeside. I’d imagine some find the Cork ladies alright, but I’m too busy drooling over the lads.”
More absolute facts right there.
Scott goes on to list a host of other brilliant things about living in Cork, including the handy Cork Airport access, the welcoming people, the excellent food, the magnificent scenery, and the proper Irish pubs.
On behalf of Cork Scott, we’re delighted you’re here.
