ACR Heritage unveil new plaque

A plaque will be unveiled at Ath Ridire (Aughariddera) Bridge, Rockgrove/Carrigathou, Coachford on Sunday 13th October , at 3pm. This is the latest in a series of Heritage Trail plaques by ACR Heritage (the Heritage Committee of Aghabullogue Coachford Rylane Community Council). The plaque will commemorate the battle which took place here on 4 August 1580, during the Second Desmond Rebellion, as between the MacCarthys, Lords of Muskerry and Sir James FitzGerald of Desmond. Locally resident members of the McCarthy and FitzGerald families will perform the unveiling on the day. Car parking will be available nearby at the entrance to Cronin Concrete Group (Tony Dwyer’s), Rockgrove, with a short walk to the bridge itself. All are welcome, but ensure to dress appropriately for the weather, as this is an outdoor event. Please email acrheritage@gmail.com or contact 086-0456554 for details or directions.
