Rathmichael Weekend in Cork

Date: Friday to Sunday, 5th - 7th April 2019

We will visit Cork City under the expert guidance of Howard Clarke, who is at present engaged in research for the Irish Historic Towns Atlas of Cork city. Howard was also responsible for the Irish Historic Towns Atlas of Dublin part 1, to 1610.

The programme has not been fully finalised yet, but Howard has agreed to provide two guided tours on the Sat. - one of the Medieval and early modern core of the city and one of the 17th and 18th century area of reclamation. As usual, we will have a presentation on the Friday evening after dinner, and we will propose a visit to a convenient site on the homeward journey on Sunday morning and early afternoon.

As usual, all attendees will be asked to contribute an amount to cover the expenses of our guide, the lecture room charges and other incidentals that may arise. This charge will be notified when final arrangements have been agreed.

This trip is now fully booked with some members on a waiting list.
