Zoom Lecture by
Dr Colin Rynne
Thurs Oct. 28 at 8pm
This lecture re-examines the in many ways extraordinary industrial heritage of west Cork, from its nationally significant copper mines and slate quarries, to its almost forgotten linen industry. Food-processing industries such as Deasy's Brewery in Clonakilty, along with flour and oat mills, such as O'Leary's mill at Castleview, near Clonakilty, were also important during the 19th and 20th centuries. Many of the buildings and landscapes associated with these industries have come down to us in a generally good state of preservation. The challenge for future generations, however, is to maintain this.
Dr Colin Rynne lectures on post-medieval and industrial archaeology in the Department of Archaeology UCC. His publications include The industrial archaeology of Cork city and its environs (1999) and Industrial Ireland 1750-1930: an archaeology (2006). He is also author of Industrial Heritage of County Cork (2019), published by the Heritage Unit of Cork County Council.
