First summer outing 2021

In line with re-opening up the country post Covid-19 Pandemic, Bantry Historical held a small gathering in person on Wednesday 21st and Thursday 22nd July 2021.  Here Hazel Vickery led the group on a guided walk along the older part of Bantry town - from Bantry Library via Market Street to Garryvurrchu Graveyard.  Back in the day that route would be described as:  from the Mill up past the Town Hall, over Kingston's bridge and down Pound Lane to the Church!
