September 20, 2014 |

With a city population of 119,230 in 2011 Cork is the second largest city in the Republic of Ireland, and the third largest in all of Ireland.

However, this heritage left Dili with a distinct Portuguese flavour and probably the furthest east where you can savour genuine Portuguese food and architecture. Dili has since recovered remarkably, although one can still see many gutted buildings. Check out this article to find out more:Read More
