Cork City FC
Cork City Football Club is an Irish football club based in Cork. The club was founded and elected to the League of Ireland in 1984. It was one of the first clubs in Ireland to field a team of professional footballers. With the progression of professionalism at the club, continued development of the Turners Cross stadium and the transition to summer football, the club became one of the biggest and most supported clubs in the country.
Simulated Big Rebel Sleep Out
FOCUS Ireland have urged all Corkonians to support their SIMULATED Big Rebel Sleep Out organised in association with Cork City FC. The 2021 event will repeat the SIMULATED format of last year with all participants staging their sleep outs in the safety and security of their own homes, gardens or couches in light of the current health restrictions and protocols resulting from the Covid-19 emergency. FOCUS Ireland works with people in Cork who are homeless or in danger of losing their homes across the county of Cork and throughout Ireland. They also have ran a ‘Winter Warmth’ appeal where they collected unwanted blankets for another homeless service.
