It was an unusual state of affairs that there was no senior football club of note in the sizeable Irish town of Cork between the 1940s and the 1980s. The 1984 creation of Cork City through the merger of a number of local teams changed that situation and the club was duly elected into the League of Ireland that same year. A constant battle to avoid relegation made the club's early days difficult, but as the decade advanced a move to a new ground at Turners Cross heralded an upturn in both standards and fortunes. Cork's first silverware came with the Munster Senior Cup in 1988 and many more trophies would follow in the decades ahead.
