’Making a heritage CORKumnavigation trip’’ with Jack O'Keeffe, avid sailor, paddler and rower, 7pm to 8pm

Free, live on Zoom &

It was said that the city of Cork was built on a series of 13 islands. The channels in between have all been arched over or filled-in over the centuries, so that only two remain: the river Lee (North Channel) and the river Sabhrann (South Channel). Using Meitheal Mara’s dedicated guide, Jack O’Keeffe will explain the principles of planning a full ‘CORKumnavigation’ and will show you some of the heritage highlights along the way.
