A number of popular tourist sites across Cork have reopened, providing a much-needed boost for some local economies.
From this week Skibbereen Heritage Centre, Michael Collins House, St Mary’s Collegiate Church, Youghal Clock Gate, Cobh Heritage Centre, Spike Island and the grounds of Mallow Castle are open to the public.
Dursey Cable Car will also resume service on July 6.
Safety procedures have been put in place at each location.
Chief Executive of Cork County Council, Tim Lucey said: “I would like to congratulate all of those involved in ensuring these tourism spots can reopen their doors.
“We continue to encourage people to stay local, and support local in the weeks and months ahead.”
Mayor of the County of Cork, Councillor Mary Linehan Foley said: “I would encourage locals and visitors alike to pay a visit to these spots over the summer and support our local economies.”
The local authority has also created an interactive ‘Rediscover Cork County’ map providing information on attractions and activities across the county.
