Rosscarbery, County Cork

On the map: Rosscarbery is a town in County Cork, Ireland. The town is on a shallow estuary, which opens onto Rosscarbery Bay. The area has been occupied from very early times, as is evidenced by the Neolithic remains (pre 2000 BC) such as Portal Dolmens. The area is very strong in Bronze Age remains – including a number of Stone Circles. There are also two Inscribed Stones in Burgatia. The number of Ring Forts and Holy Wells witnesses the Iron Age and transition from the Old to the New (Christian) God. Rosscarbery was home to the School of Ross, a major centre of learning, at one time being a university town, and one of the major cities in Europe, around the 6th century. Today, there is still a cathedral in the town – an unusual feature for what now would be considered a sleepy country town! Rosscarbery is a popular tourist destination in the summertime, being in proximity to at least three fine beaches. The nearest of these, the “Warren Beach”, is about a mile from the village, and is designated a blue flag beach.
