Islamic Cultural Center of Ireland
Large prayer hall. Friendly place for kids and ladies. Nice friendly people. The Mosque is loacted in the southern part of Cork in Togher area. The Cork Muslim Society was established in 1984. For a number of years the Muslims were praying in a rented house. In 1994 a house was bought to be used as a Mosque and Islamic Centre. However, after a few years a problem arose over the lack of planning permission to change the use of the house from a private dwelling into a Mosque. The Cork Corporation decided to close the Mosque in February 2001 following complaints from the neighbours. At present local Muslims in Cork are praying in a rented accommodation awaiting the establishment of their Mosque in new premises.
