The Heritage Unit of Cork County Council works effortlessly to raise the awareness of the wonderful heritage that surrounds us all in County Cork. We seek to achieve this by holding events, workshops, and creating relevant publications, in addition to frequently communicating with the Media on a range of different heritage matters.
The Heritage Unit is undertaking ongoing heritage signage at a number of Cork County Council owned/maintained sites throughout the county, such as the Lusitania Memorial in Cobh, Glanworth Bridge, and Baltimore Pier.
The County Archaeologist has also developed a number of detailed maps looking at the heritage of the numerous towns within the County.
The Heritage Unit is active in many of the events organised and/or supported by Cork County Council, including Celebrating Cork Past Heritage Exhibition, the Cork Summer Show, Biodiversity Week, and Seachtain na Gaeilge. In addition, the Heritage Unit organises numerous events for Heritage Week.
