One of West Cork’s most popular tourist attractions is celebrating its
20th anniversary.

The Model Village in Clonakilty is an outdoor scale model of
picturesque West Cork towns
as they appeared in the 1940s, it includes Clonakilty, Kinsale,
Dunmanway and Bandon.

It’s popular with both children and adults and a miniature train runs
through the landscaped grounds
showing how the old west cork railway used to link the region.

Improvements have been taking place this year including an indoor
interpretive room

Ted Murphy is chairman of the Model Village which is located on the
Inchydoney Road
