This photography book unveils brand-new images from a breathtaking
journey through the heart and soul of Cork. From historic buildings, charming
streetscapes, and bustling maritime and sporting life to the rugged coastal scenery,
iconic lighthouses, and hidden gems of picturesque islands that make Cork truly
unique, all captured through extraordinary aerial photography taken from heights of
1,000 to 5,000 feet.
Exclusively photographed from a light aircraft the book features dramatic shots of
Fastnet Rock and Baltimore Lifeboat. Enjoy breathtaking views from Cape Clear’s
peaceful shores to the rugged terrain of Dursey Island and the vibrant streets of Cork
City. See the Irish Coast Guard R117 helicopter in action along with RNLI and
land-based Coast Guard cliff rescue units, and gain a bird’s eye view of Cork’s
farmlands and county towns.
