Here at TheCork.ie we have a love, and hate, relationship with Subway,
or SUBWAY® to give it its correct name.
Over time we’ve alternated between the Oliver Plunkett Street and
McCurtain Street outlets in the City Centre, collecting points and

stores are also high in fibre and an excellent source of calcium and

The SUBWAY® brand is the world’s largest submarine sandwich franchise,
with over 38,000 locations in more than 100 countries
Headquartered in Milford, Connecticut, the SUBWAY® brand was
co-founded by Fred DeLuca and Dr. Peter Buck in 1965. That partnership
marked the beginning of a remarkable journey, which has made it
possible for thousands of individuals to build and succeed in their
