Hard luck to the rest of Ireland, but Cork has officially got the best town in Ireland and the UK right now.

Clonakilty in Cork was given the Great Town prize at the Urbanism Awards Ceremony in London yesterday evening.

Going up against Blackpool and Todmorden in the category, the picturesque little west Cork spot managed to bag the prize because of its top notch town centre and proximity to the seaside.

I guess we can see what they're talking about...

Fair play to all the lovely people of Clonakilty!
