FERMOY WALK TO UNVEIL HIDDEN HISTORIC TREASURES
A new publication about Fermoy will be previewed on this Friday evening, September 23 when local historian, Bill Power takes people on a guided walk of the town. The walk will set off from the town park gates at 6.30pm. The new publication, Fermoy Historic Town, has been compiled by Bill for Fermoy Enterprise Board.
“This is aimed at local people and visitors to Fermoy who want some basic information about the town,” says Bill, whose previous publication about the town, Fermoy on the Blackwater, was favourably received.
Bill has described over fifty historic sites in the town, the publication of which has been partially funded by Avondhu Blackwater Partnership. These include military and religious sites, historic buildings, landmarks and interesting people.
The publication will be officially launched next month. Friday night’s ‘historic walk’ is being held as part of Cork County’s ‘Culture Night’. Participants in the walk will visit ‘Wellington’s Wicket,’ the War Memorial in Brian Boru Square, Christ Church, the Presbyterian Church, the bridge, the monument to the Kents of Bawnard, Ashe Quay, Barnane and the Fr Michael Kennedy Memorial.
The event will go ahead regardless of weather conditions. While there is no charge for taking part in the event, adult participants will be invited to make a donation of €2 per person to the Fermoy branch of Multiple Sclerosis Ireland.
