The Chicago Cork Association seeks to be an online meeting point for all those who hail from Cork or whose ancestors emigrated to the greater Chicago Metropolitan area of the United States. You don’t have to be from Cork to join. This online group stems from the Cork Mens Association, a registered 501 C3 charitable organization, and one of the oldest county associations in Chicago. Whether you love Cork hurling or Football, road bowling, the ‘sing -song’ that Cork is famous for or have a deep love of the Cork accent:) – this is the place to connect with other like-minded and sane people!!! We hope to gather a few times a year, and have some events, so we can ‘brush up’ on our accents ; talk about how much we miss Cork and of course sing “De Banks of my own lovely Lee”- Up De Rebels!
