West Cork History Festival The inaugural West Cork History Festival will take place over the weekend of 28-30 July 2017. The programme will span a diverse set of places, subjects, and periods. This will range from discussions of recent work on the Knights Templar to the events of the Irish revolutionary period in West Cork. It will encompass archaeology, political, literary, and military themes. Among our speakers, leading local, national, and international historians will be joined by commentators and senior diplomats. While much of the focus will be on Irish themes, the perspective will be international. We are not ashamed to be citizens of the world, as well as West Cork. Sign up here to hear when the full programme is online and booking is available.
