Sugar Babies From Cobh, Cork
Sugar babies are women who provide intimate relationships or simple companionships to men in exchange for monetary favors or gifts. It is a mutually beneficial arrangement that can work for both those who need companionship and those who desire nice things or money. It is a type of relationship, not a business transaction, unlike other methods of garnering companionship in exchange for money. Sugar babies are not stereotypical "gold diggers." They come in all shapes and sizes and can be any type of woman in Cobh, Cork.
A sugar baby may be a college student who is paying her way through college, has some spare time to commit to a sugar baby/sugar daddy relationship and enjoys nice things. She may be intelligent, self-sufficient and classy. She may also be the opposite. The thing to remember is that sugar daddies are looking for different things. Therefore, sugar babies can be any combination of those things.
Sugar babies can also be independently successful women. They may have money of their own, spend time traveling as an executive for a big company, be a business owner or be perpetrator of any number of successful business endeavors. This type of sugar baby may find excitement in this sort of relationship. She may not need anything monetary or nice gifts from her partner. She may just enjoy having a man spend money on her, despite having plenty of money of her own. Many men find success attractive in a woman. Therefore, certain sugar daddies may have exactly this type of woman in mind when they seek to initiate a relationship with a sugar baby.
Monetary success and intelligence or lack thereof are not the only things in which sugar babies differ. A sugar baby's appearance is another area that may differ in Cobh, Cork due to cultural expectations or simply differ by personal preference. One sugar daddy may like a classic trophy girlfriend. He may want her to be young and very attentive to her looks on a superficial level. Another sugar daddy may not care how his sugar baby dresses but wants her to be athletic. Yet another sugar daddy may not care about looks at all and simply wants a woman who is entertaining.
When one envisions a sugar baby, the image of a young woman typically comes to mind. This is not always the case. Sugar babies may be older women because older and younger sugar daddies alike may prefer older women. Older women may also seek a life of relative luxury in their later years. It is a good way to have fun, receive gifts and take a break from the hustle of life.
The diversity in sugar babies also applies to ethnicity and weight. There is no set standard for any of these things when it comes to sugar babies. Any woman can strive to be a sugar baby and find the right sugar daddy for her. She can be tattooed and pierced or girl next door sweet. She can be funny or serious. She can be a lover of the arts or a computer geek. In short, sugar baby is as diverse a word as the word woman.

Demography and people
The population of the Cobh area has increased greatly in recent times with large new housing estates established on the outskirts of the town, placing severe pressures on the transport infrastructure. The town boundary has not yet reflected these changes in order to accommodate the new housing developments. According to the 2006 Census, the combined population of Cobh and Great Island was 12,887 with a large amount of housing estates being built in areas such as Rushbrooke and Carrignafoy. Cobh is gradually becoming a satellite town to the nearby Cork City, and has a dynamic (and international) commuter population as can be evidenced on the hourly commuter train service to Cork city.
Coordinates: 51Â°51â€²N 8Â°18â€²Wï»¿ / ï»¿51.85Â°N 8.3Â°Wï»¿ / 51.85; -8.3 Population (2006) Cobh (pronounced /koËv/ "cove"; Irish: An CÃ³bh) is a sheltered seaport town on the south coast of County Cork, Ireland with a population of around 13,000 inhabitants. The locality, which had had several different Irish-language names, was first referred to as Cove ("The Cove of Cork") in 1750. It was renamed Queenstown in 1849 to commemorate a visit by Queen Victoria and so remained until the name Cobh (closer to the Irish spelling) was restored in 1922 with the foundation of the Irish Free State. Cobh is located on the south shore of the Great Island in Cork Harbour, (reputed to be the second largest natural harbour in the world), on south-facing slopes overlooking the entrance to the harbour. Facing the town of Cobh are Spike Island and Haulbowline Island. On a high point in the town stands the Cobh Cathedral, St. Colman's, seat of the diocese of Cloyne.
* Haulbowline Island which faces Cobh town is the headquarters of the Irish Naval Service, formerly a British naval base. * Cobh was home to Ireland's only steelworks, the former state-owned Irish Steel works which was closed by its buyer, Ispat International, in 2001. There is a controversy over the slag heap on the steelworks, where there are concerns that it may be leaching into the harbour. * Tourism is a large employer in Cobh. Large cruise liners visit Cobh each year, mainly during the summer months, although many of the tourists are transported out of Cobh by bus to other tourist destinations. * Another important employer in Cobh had been the Dutch-owned Verolme Cork Dockyard, in Rushbrooke. It opened in 1960 and ceased operations in the mid-1980s. In 1981 the mvLeinster was built at Verolme for service on the Dublin â€“ Holyhead route  The last ship built at Verolme was the Irish Naval Service's LÃ‰ Eithne (P31) . Some ship repair work is still carried at Rushbrooke using the impressive drydock and other facilities. The drydock pumps are reputed to date from 1912.
History of the harbour, Great Island and Cobh port
According to legend, one of the first colonists of Ireland was Neimheidh, who landed in Cork Harbour over 1000 years BC He and his followers were said to have been wiped out in a plague, but the Great Island was known in Irish as Oilean Ard Neimheadh because of its association with him. Later it became known as Crich Liathain because of the Lehane tribe who were rulers of it. The island subsequently became known as Oilean Mor An Barra, (the Great Island of Barry & Barrymore) after the Barry family who inherited it. The village on the island was known as Ballyvoloon, overlooking "The Cove" and this was first referred to as Cove village in 1750 by Smith the historian who said "it was inhabited by seamen and revenue officials". The Cork directory of 1787 shows about thirty businesses in the town including one butcher and one draper. The Water Club established at Haulbowline in 1720 was the progenitor of the present Royal Cork Yacht Club (now based in Crosshaven) and is the oldest yacht club in the world. The Royal Cork Yacht Club (RCYC) was based for many years in Cobh and the present Sirius Arts Centre was formerly a clubhouse of the RCYC organisation. In 1966 the Royal Cork Yacht Club merged with the Royal Munster Yacht Club, retaining the name of the RCYC but moving its headquarters to those of the RMYC at Crosshaven at the other side of the harbour. Cobh is well served by pubs and hostelries. The oldest recorded pub on the island is reputed to have been the "Anti Gallicon" situated in the Holy Ground, and apparently liable to flooding when the tide came in. This pub dated back to the 1780s and was named after opponents to the French "Gallicon" faction who opposed the powers of the Pope. Cove underwent rapid development in the early 1800s assisted by world events. Due to its naturally protected harbour Cobh has historically been important as a tactical base for naval military bases. For instance, Cobh was of major tactical military importance as a naval base during the Napoleonic wars between France and England. Today, the Irish Naval Service is based on Haulbowline island facing Cobh. The Napoleonic Wars meant the town became a British Naval port with its own admiral and much of the present day buildings were built. The cessation of hostilities dented its prosperity for a time but it became widely known as a health resort and many convalescents came to Cove to avail of its temperate climate. Amongst these was Rev. Charles Wolfe who wrote the "Burial of Sir John Moore at Corunna" and is buried in the Old Church Cemetery outside the town. One of the major transatlantic Irish ports, Cobh was the departure point for 2.5 million of the six million Irish people who emigrated to North America between 1848 and 1950. On 11 April 1912 Queenstown was the final port of call for the RMS Titanic as she set out across the Atlantic on her ill-fated maiden voyage. Local lore has it that a Titanic crew member John Coffey, a native of Queenstown, jumped ship although there is no record of him on the crew list. 123 passengers boarded in all; only 44 survived the sinking. Cobh was also a major embarkation port for men, women and children who were deported to penal colonies such as Australia. The records of such deportations can be found in the ship log books in the Cobh Museum, which since 1973 is housed in Scots church (Presbyterian church until 1969 closure) overlooking the harbour. Due to its maritime advantages, a significant shipbuilding industry developed in Cobh and the remnants of the Verolme Shipyard today maintain many of the original cranes and hoists which now form part of the significant industrial and maritime heritage of Cobh which is considered to have major tourism potential. Underutilised dockyards in Holland (e.g. NDSM/Stichting Kinetisch Noord in Amsterdam which has been redeveloped as an artistic and cultural centre and where MTV has since located) and other European countries are now emerging as major hubs of cultural and economic development, focussing on fostering creative class and knowledge-intensive industries such as media and computing. . The Verolme Shipyard currently contains the Philip Gray Gallery of Fine Art . The age of steam brought famous achievements to Cobh, most notably the first steam ship to sail from Ireland to England (1821) and the first steam ship to cross the Atlantic (Sirius 1838) which left from Passage West. In 1849 the name of the town was changed to Queenstown to honour Queen Victoria who visited Ireland in that year. Several other notable ships are associated with the town, including: * The Cunard passenger liner RMS Lusitania was sunk by a German U-Boat off the Old Head of Kinsale while en route to Liverpool in on May 7, 1915. 1198 passengers died, while 700 were rescued. The survivors and victims were brought to the town of Cobh, and over one hundred lie buried in the Old Church Cemetery just north of the town. The Lusitania Peace memorial is located in Casement Square opposite the arched building housing the Cobh Library and Courthouse. During World War I, Queenstown was a naval base for British and American destroyers operating against U-boats that preyed upon allied merchant vessels. Q-ships (heavily armed merchant ships with concealed weaponry, designed to lure submarines into making surface attacks) were called "Q-ships" as many were fitted out in Queenstown. The first division of American destroyers arrived in May 1917, and the sailors who served on those vessels were the first American servicemen in combat duty in the war. When the convoy arrived in port, after a rough passage in what were little more than open boats, they were met with a great crowd of sailors and townspeople, thankful for their help in stopping the U-boats that were blockading western Europe. The British Commodore met the captain of the American flagship by jumping onto the dock, and asked him how soon the weather-beaten American ships could be put to use. "We're ready now, sir!" was the widely quoted answer from the Captain. Due to its tactical military importance, under the terms of the Anglo-Irish Treaty 1921 the port remained a UK sovereign base, see Treaty Port. Along with the other Treaty ports it was handed over to the government of the Irish Free State in 1938.
