A participant in the previous course:
“For me it deepened my appreciation of West Cork; its history, heritage and folklore. It gave me an understanding of the steps we need to take to ensure that this is carefully preserved. It linked me up with an enthusiastic class-full of people who shared a similar interest; and finally it was the impetus to launch our Heritage Walkway project”
