U.C.C. is currently involved in a very interesting project pertaining to coastal communities of West Cork: - 'University College Cork's Deep Maps: West Cork Coastal Cultures project explores interactions with the West Cork coast between Clonakilty and Bantry Bay. The project links the cultural history of the coastline to scientific and environmental priorities and explores the wealth of maritime knowledge in this area. As part of the project, we are surveying people who live in, or are visiting, the area to understand what you value about the West Cork coast. It is hoped that local and governmental organisations will draw on our findings to inform decisions that determine the long-term future of this unique coastline'. Some wonderful information has already been collated to date and for updates on the project and indeed to assist with same visit the Deep Maps Website.
