These spray-painted definitions of Cork slang words have popped up all over the city

Mint.

OVER THE PAST week or so, there have been some sightings on social media of a few very Cork sayings painted on to electricity boxes around the city.

Not only that, but they’re painted in the vibrant rebel red and white colours you’ve come to associate with the city.

Like this definition of “langerload”

And “bazzer”

It’s all part of the #ReimagineCork project put together by volunteers who set out their purpose as:

a community effort focused on making Cork beautiful by rejuvenating laneways, urban green spaces, & derelict buildings.

Not only have they been focused on educating visitors to the finer details of Cork slang

But they have been jazzing up areas of the city since 2014

Basically how it works is that you submit an idea for something in the city you feel “needs a bit of community love” and they try and connect you with volunteers to make it happen.

They’ve been responsible for some wonderful transformations in the city

And know how to have the craic

Excellent work all

Get you rubber dollies on and head over to the ReimagineCork website if you fancy helping out.
