Cork County Council are delighted to announce the publication of the ‘Historic Town Map of Bantry’. It joins Bandon, Kinsale and Dunmanway which were produced last year.

All are available in your local tourist offices and heritage centres or download online on the Visit Cork County website (www.visitcorkcounty.com).

The maps are designed to be a self guided tour of the town’s key heritage buildings and features. Each map is beautiful illustrations with the unique buildings that make up the town along with a brief history.

They are in a compact format that one can easily carry around and fold up neatly to take home as a souvenir. Cork County Council have been fortunate to have the Cork artist Rhoda Cronin-Allanic who prepare and illustrate the maps. “Her uniquely illustrated designs are self evident and are the culmination of many hours spent identifying and researching the wealth of history in our West Cork towns and subsequently portraying this knowledge in a user friendly and interesting fashion”.
