The tradition of awarding the freedom of the city still lives on in cities around the world.

Notable recipients included Charles Stewart Parnell, William Gladstone, JFK, Eamon de Valera, Mary Robinson and Sean Og O hAilpin. This book reveals and brings to life the rich history associated with the awarding of the freedom of the city in Cork by describing the history of the honour and profiling notable recipients.
