City Hall is located in Cork,  Ireland

Cork City Hall (Irish: Halla na Cathrach, Corcaigh) is a civic building in Cork, Ireland which houses the administrative headquarters of Cork City Council. The original Cork City Hall was destroyed on 11 December 1920 by the Black and Tans during the Irish War of Independence in an event known as the "Burning of Cork".

Following a design competition, and construction, the foundation stone of the new City Hall building was laid by Éamon de Valera on the 9 July 1932. The cost of this new building was provided by the British Government in the 1930s as a gesture of reconciliation. On 24 April 1935, Cork Corporation held a meeting in the new hall for the first time. The City Hall was officially opened by de Valera on the 8 September 1936.

The building is faced with dressed limestone quarried in Little Island and incorporates a concert hall. A major extension to City Hall was opened in 2007. The Hall has been used for many years for the purposes of many concerts, but is now more frequently used for orchestra and choir, though still holds several concerts per year for pop and rock acts.
