'For Ireland to succeed, we need Cork to succeed' - the sights and sounds of #CorkOnTheRise

Cork - a city full of history, culture and identity, and a city with so much more potential.

A city with a new appetite that is on the right path and a city that is ambitious and not afraid to be different.

But a city with a broken rental market that needs to change and a city and a city with an unfinished Events Centre.

These are just some of the points raised about Cork's future and potential amongst the discussion and debate at today's #CorkOnTheRise event at UCC's Executive Education Centre.

The ups and downs of what Cork was, what Cork currently is and what Cork could be were discussed by a panel which included Tánaiste Simon Coveney, Cork City Council Chief Executive Ann Doherty, property developer Michael O'Flynn of O'Flynn Group and Architect Angela Brady, and was led by Michael Clifford.

Here we take a look at the sights and sounds from the event.
