Come with us on our late-season outing to West Cork Heritage Centre/Béal na Bláth and Keimaneigh

We are all excited and looking forward to this historical trip.  Bus leaves Bantry at 9.45 from Bantry Fire Station and travels on to Bandon to the West Cork Heritage Centre

This exhibition includes the old shop, schoolhouse, forge, kitchens and ship to shore apparatus.  Old stocks and whipping posts can also be seen, and much more.
There will be ample time for fine dining in a nearby restaurant, or you can explore the town for further culinary delights.  A visit to the commemoration site at Béal na Bláth, on this the centenary year of the death of Gen Michael Collins is followed by a leisurely bus ride through rustic countryside and over the hill to Keimaneigh where Seán O'Sullivan will tell all about Cath Céim an Fhia 1822 (the Battle of Keimaneigh 1822).  Back home before 6pm hopefully.
We'd love to have you on board with us. So please let me know if you can attend.  Email bantryhistorical@gmail.com
