In addition to currently holding the All Ireland Hurling title and the Eircom league, it seems Cork has another reason to celebrate as results suggest that the brightest students in the country hail from the banks of the Lee. In a boost for Cityslickers, the Dubs came in second in terms of producing the best Leaving Cert results leaving us poor culchies trailing.

Of course, it is yet more undeniable evidence of the terrible stunting effect which parition is having on our nation. It seems the further you get from the border, the smarter you become. Lets fix this problem once and for all and cast the border out to sea!
