A new official Monopoly board for Cork is being launched this week from Winning Moves.

To mark the launch, the Cork Shandon Bells - which are featured on the board - will ring at 8.50am on Friday October 19th.

"This will be a spectacular launch and we are extremely excited launch day is just about upon us," said Dan Taylor, Monopoly manager at Winning Moves UK, which makes the board under licence from Hasbro. "The board is a wonderful celebration of Cork's crown jewels."

22 of Cork's property landmarks have replaced the famous London streets on the board. There are also a number of customised twists including tweaked Community Chest and Chance cards.

Winning Moves has also confirmed there have been enquiries from Cork ex-pats living and working overseas in places including Australia, New Zealand, US and China.
