People interested in the history of Cork City and Harbour
have the chance to view historic maps, charts and plans this week.
A free exhibition with rare maps from the 1700’s onwards has gone on
display at the “Ivan Wolfe Gallery” in Monkstown.
The exhibition includes rare plans of the Harbour forts of Camden,
Carlisle, Corkbeg and Haulbowline.
The free exhibition is open daily 9am to 6pm until Thursday.
Well known maritime Journalist Tom MacSweeney says “The Marina” is one area
where the maps show changes in land-use over the years
