Robert Harris

We were very sorry to hear the news of the death of Robert Harris on the eve of St Patrick’s Day. Among many other things, he was a founder member of the Festival committee, a contributor to the programme, especially the organisation with Finola of the always popular field trips, and a tireless source of generous advice and support.

The Roaringwater Journal blog, which he wrote with Finola and which is featured here, has so many wonderful articles by him about West Cork history, archaeology, landscape, architecture and so much more.

His many friends in West Cork and far beyond will miss him. Our thoughts are with Finola.
