Over the last number of years Cork County Council has been producing a heritage book each year, from bridges to houses and churches to castles. What is very evident in these pages is the sheer number of wonderful heritage sites scattered throughout the County; not to mention the household names and legendary cultural characters that are synonymous with the Rebel County of Cork. Late 2019 will see the publication of a book on the Industrial Heritage of County Cork by Cork County Council, and just announced is another publication with a twist – a colouring book that will capture in a fun and exciting manner, the wonderful culture and heritage of the County of Cork.
Cork County Council is inviting the people of Cork to put forward any number of suggestions to include everything from natural and built heritage to archaeological sites and famous people from our past, even including traditional crafts and modern day festivals. The publication, which will be bilingual in both Irish and English, will include numerous drawings and associated text, as well as an overall map to indicate the location of the sites in the context of one another.
The primary aim of the publication is to highlight the vastness of culture and heritage in County Cork, and in particular sites that can be visited and enjoyed by all the family. Everyone who submits and has a drawing included in the book will receive a number of copies of the publication to be shared with friends, colleagues, classmates and family alike and it is anticipated that the book will be published just before Christmas 2019. Cork County Council will be delighted to receive all suggestions and recommendations, and in particular, any drawings or sketches, up to the closing date of Monday the 26th of August, which can be emailed email@example.com. The undertaking is being supported by the Heritage Council and through the Creative Ireland Programme.
