Youghal – History and Heritage Exhibition in LHQ Gallery at Cork County Council Library Headquarters

The town of Youghal is steeped in history and heritage. The Local Studies Library has put together an exhibition which explores some of this history, and this will be on display in the LHQ Gallery in Cork County Council Library Headquarters from August 14th to 18th, and from 21st to 25th.

The exhibition includes 8mm film recorded by William Matthes of events in the town in the 1960s and 1970s, photographs from the Horgan Collection, artefacts and photographs from Youghal Carpets, an exhibition on the bridges of Youghal and a podcast on Florence Newton, ‘The Witch of Youghal’.

This project has been funded by The Heritage Council and Cork County Council.
