  • Title: About Kanturk
    Descriptive info: The town is very accessible.. Standing in the middle of Kanturk one is less than an hour’s drive from Cork, Tralee, Limerick and Killarney.. Mainline rail is less that ten minutes away, and airports at Cork, Kerry and Shannon are within easy reach.. Kanturk is nestled between two hills and the rivers Allow and Dallow, which converge in the town, dictate much of its layout.. Its streets radiate from an old market square and its two old stone bridges are focal points in the town.. Historically noted for its well-wooded appearance, the visitor to Kanturk is initially struck by its beech-lined approaches.. Kanturk is a compact town, with modern development well-integrated into its traditional layout.. A deep sense of history and tradition has shaped Kanturk, physically, socially and culturally.. Its hinterland straddles the strongly Gaelic Sliabh Luachra region to the west, and the more planted region to the east around the Munster Blackwater.. Both are reflected in the town’s cultural and physical atmosphere.. The magnificent Kanturk Castle, for example, is one the largest structures built by a native Irish chieftain and the town’s name, derived from Ceann Turic (Boar’s Head), reflects the legend that  ...   range of services and businesses unusual for a town of its size.. Along with its physical and cultural features, Kanturk has many attractions and amenities for visitors and newcomers alike.. It is noted for its three public riverside parks and has a strong and very diverse sporting tradition.. The town, for example, boasts the only cycling velodrome outside of Dublin.. Kanturk has a host of pubs – both traditional and contemporary in ambiance - and many eating places for ethnic and traditional tastes.. It has an annual Arts Festival and is the centre for a very active and inclusive choral society.. The town has strong social networks and a long-established Community Council.. Kanturk is also at the centre of a strong fishing region, dominated by the Blackwater, and the local rivers are proactively managed by the local angling club.. All things considered, Kanturk is the perfect base for exploring Sliabh Luachra, Duhallow and the upper Blackwater.. The town of Kanturk, therefore, has much to offer.. It is cosy and rooted in tradition, but also self-confident, proud and progressive.. Visitors and newcomers alike will find it warm, interesting and welcoming.. 2009 Kanturk and District Community Council..

  • Title: Kanturk - Historical Overview
    Descriptive info: Historic Kanturk - An Overview.. Kanturk is located in north-west County Cork, in the barony of Duhallow and at the confluence of the rivers Allow and Dalua which together flow into the upper reaches of the Munster Blackwater.. First mentioned under 1510 A.. D.. in the Annals of the Four Masters (Annála Rioghachta Éireann), the name is derived from the Gaelic placename Ceann Tuirc.. This literally means ‘the boar’s head’ and numerous theories have been proposed to explain its derivation, encompassing the religious, the topographical and the mythological.. The owners of Kanturk from early modern times was a sept of the McCarthy clan, known locally as the MacDonogh.. These occupied the original Kanturk Castle which was nearer to the town than its still-standing successor, and most likely stood near the strategically-sited river crossing.. The early settlement probably evolved around this site.. The developing settlement of Kanturk acquired legal standing in 1615 in a Royal re-grant to MacDonogh.. This was associated with the decline of the ancient Gaelic order following the battle of Kinsale in 1601 and the introduction of English administration into Gaelic Ireland.. The MacDonogh gained the title of ‘Lord of Duhallow’ from this re-grant and Kanturk was granted the privilege of a weekly market.. In the first half of the seventeenth century the McDonogh mortgaged his land to Philip Percival, an English Protestant.. This was largely to finance the building of the present Kanturk Castle which was probably intended as a manor house appropriate to his status as Lord of Duhallow.. However, when the MacDonogh went into rebellion in 1641 he lost the right to redeem the mortgage and ownership then passed to Percival’s descendants.. In 1677, Sir Philip Percival II instructed his agent to lay out the town in ‘copyholds’ – a form of medieval English tenure – and this marked the first direct intervention  ...   population grew steadily in the half-century up to the famine of 1845, peaking at 4,388 in the 1841 census.. During this period the next significant milestone in the development of the town occurred with the appointment of Edward Tierney as land agent for the Earl of Egmont in 1823.. Tierney displayed vision and initiative in modernising the town and district which, up to then, comprised mainly of small, thatched and poorly constructed buildings.. Under his influence, for example, the town acquired a courthouse, hotel, market house, and the new street of Egmont Place.. He paid for some features, such as the ‘Metal Bridge’, from his own resources.. Ambition was another of Edward Tierney’s traits and he eventually gained ownership of the Egmont Estate from the Percival family in 1841.. This passed to his son-in-law, a Welsh clergyman named Sir Lionel Darell, in 1858.. However, in 1863 the Percivals regained control of their former estates following a highly-publicised law suit in which they successfully contested the original will by which Tierney had acquired them.. As a result of the land agitation in the 1880s, the Egmont Estate was sold to the tenants in 1892, thus marking the turning of the wheel of colonisation.. Much of the current ownership of Kanturk dates from this event.. The population of the town went into continuous decline following the economic and demographic changes after the famine.. It had sunk to less than 2000 by the end of the century, a figure it did not regain until the 1960s.. Thereafter, it stabilised and Kanturk remained a strong retail and services centre for its largely agricultural hinterland.. The information in this historic overview of Kanturk was provided by Mr.. Patrick O’Sullivan.. to view a Conjectural Map of Kanturk in 1791 by Mr.. O'Sullivan, based on a survey by John Purcell in that year.. (PDF 1.. 4mb)..
