The Cork County Council Heritage Section has developed a series of Historic Town Maps for 14 towns and villages in Cork County. Initially a West Cork initiative with 8 maps produced for that region, the project has expanded to include the production of Historic Town Maps for the towns of Charleville and Mitchelstown, with plans to produce additional maps for other historic towns around the County.
The maps are designed to be a self-guided tour of the town’s key heritage sites. Each one contains beautiful illustrations of the key sites and buildings and a brief history. They are part of a strategy by Cork County Council to highlight the rich heritage resource to be seen in our towns and villages in County Cork.
