Coonty Cork (Erse: Contae Chorcaí‎) is ane o the twenty-sax coonties o the Republic o Ireland, an also ane o the thirty-twa coonties o Ireland, located within the province o Munster, an wis named efter the ceety o Cork (Erse: Corcaigh‎). The soothrenmaist o the Erse coonties, covering an area o just under 7,500 square kilometres it is bi far the lairgest coonty in Ireland. Cork is nicknamed "The Rebel Coonty", as a result o the support o the townsmen o Cork in 1491 for Perkin Warbeck, a pretender to the throne o Ingland during the Wars o the Roses. In more recent times, the name has referred to the prominent role Cork played in the Erse War o Independence (1919–1921) when it wis the scene of most o the fighting, in addition it wis an anti-treaty stronghold during the Erse Civil War (1922–23).
