North Cork is a region with many stories to tell. There are hundreds of roads to travel down and numerous historical spaces to admire. The impressive scenery casts a hypnotic spell on the explorer. The region is defined by the meandering River Blackwater and its multiple tributaries and mountainous terrain to the north. It borders four counties: Kerry, Limerick, Tipperary and Waterford.
Colourful villages provide different textures and cultural landscapes. Each of the villages have their own unique history, all connect and add in some way to the greatness of the region. This book examines a hudred or so postcards in North Cork, many of which were taken c. 1900–20, and some of their historical contexts. North Cork Through Time shows how the multitude of landmarks in the area have been passed from one generation to another and have evolved in response to their environments, contributing to giving the County of Cork and its citizens a sense of identity and continuity.
