"The term city means a lot to a corporation. When we think of a city we think of densely populated hub full of activity."
What means a lot to corporations are large populations of well educated potential employees with a good pipeline of same into the future. Excellent local and international transport links. First class infrastructure in terms of power, water, broadband, etc. Simply calling ourselves a city won't address the fact we're a small town in the west of Ireland.
To me city status smacks of wannabe pretensions.
