Fans of the Tall Ships Races have launched a new Facebook page to campaign for their return to Cork Harbour.
Waterford recently celebrated a successful Tall Ships Race weekend, with thousands turning out to welcome the magnificent fleet.
The campaigners state: "The Tall Ships Race came to Cobh & Cork in 1991, since then it has been to Waterford (twice) and Dublin once and will be back to Dublin in 2012. Cork Harbour should be hosting this event again."
The page, which went up sometime last week, has already attracted 62 'likes', with many relating their fond memories of the previous Tall Ships visit to Cork 20 years ago.
