An online story map, the Revolution Trail features 30 historical sites located around Cork City. The areas carry stories of huge significance in relation to the Irish Revolutionary Period. The trail was written by Gerry White and designed by Serena O’Connor (Cork City Council)
The trail outlines the history of Cork’s streets and the revolutionary tales associated with them and includes historic sites such as the National Monument on Grand Parade, the site of an assassination on South Mall and the centre of Patrick Street, which bore witness to large-scale destruction during the Burning of Cork in 1920.
The lesser-known site along St. Augustine Street, was home to the Wallace sisters, Nora and Sheila, who ran a shop there and served as a secret communications centre and headquarters for the IRA’s Cork No. 1 Brigade. Journey back in time and learn about more revolutionary tales at Cork sites such as Broad Street, Dillon’s Cross and UCC. Check out the Cork City Revolution Trail by visiting:
