Gunpowder Walk in Ballincollig Regional Park

Postby ballinc1 on Tue Dec 29, 2009 2:40 pm

Jenny Webb from Ballincollig Heritage Association is leading a gunpowder walk through Ballincollig Regional Park on Saturday 2nd January at 1.45pm, starting at the eastern end of the park. Meet in the GAA pitches car park, opposite the former visitors' centre. The manufacture of gunpowder in the 19th century will be explained with reference to the surviving buildings. It would be great to have the company of anyone knowledgeable in the actual use of gunpowder to supplement the tour.
To get to the eastern end of the site, turn right at the new Aldi supermarket on Main Street,if coming from Cork City, pass through the pillars of the East Gate and follow the road down to the GAA. The walk will take from between one and a half and two hours. Wear strong shoes. For more information, phone Jenny on 0860875755.

Hi Jenny

Bertie MacCurtain is your man. I'll text on his number to you. Myself and a few more lads will be there on Saturday to enjoy the tour.

Thanks
