Epoxy, silicone are the best for cork. A thick layer of silicone should do
the trick in most cases.
If your surface is very irregular try breaking/cutting the cork into
sections or "tiles" to make the surface have more contact, hence better
gluing on uneven surface. A caulking gun tube of silicone is typically what
I'll use.
