Roisin Burke, in the Evening Echo, reports:

Cork has been rated the most culturally vibrant city in Europe, according to a report carried out by the European Commission.

The EU report states that Cork obtained the maximum score for concerts/shows and cinema attendance which correspond to around 12 concerts per 100,000 inhabitants and 10,700 cinema tickets sold for every 1,000 inhabitants.

The city was also named the best small city in Europe for ‘business friendliness’ by the Financial Times magazine, which ranked Cork as one of the overall top 25 European Cities of the Future 2018/19.
