Mahon is an area to the south-eastern side of Cork, Ireland with a population of 13,006. Mahon gets its name from Lough Mahon, a wide stretch of the upper section of Cork Harbour. It was once a peninsula of green fields and estates but in recent years has seen many developments. The area was generally known as the Ring of Mahon, and is the site of Ringmahon House (formerly occupied by James Murphy of Murphy's Brewery and later by Ben Dunne of Dunnes Stores).
