There is a large and uncritical section devoted to Gerard Murphy's controversial book which has already been ripped apart by other historians:, etc.

At the very least the article should contain reference to Murphy's critics or have it appear alongside opposing arguments like that of John Borgonovo or else removed until there is a historical consensus about the extent of sectarian killings in Cork. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:15, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

"Cork's city charter was granted by King John of England in 1185."[edit]

must be a different year or a different king... TheNusz (talk) 06:24, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

Seems the charter was granted, or at least presented, by 'Prince' John. See here as example. I've piped the link, with ref., accordingly. RashersTierney (talk) 09:26, 19 August 2012 (UTC)
