The City Hall, Cork 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, designs by Alfred Jones and Stephen Kelly were selected, and the construction contract for the replacement civic buildings awarded to John Sisk & Son. The foundation stone of the new City Hall building was laid by Éamon de Valera on 9 July 1932. The cost of this new building was provided by the British Government in the 1930s as a gesture of reconciliation. Wikipedia
