Coachford - Cork - Village

scene

Coachford (Irish: Áth an Chóiste) is a village west of Cork City, in County Cork, Ireland. It is located on the north side of the River Lee. Coachford got its name from Áth an Chóiste (ford of the Coaches) as there used to be a narrow ford across the stream (which is now part of the river lee) This was flooded to make way for hydroelectric power and a lot of dwelling houses and farmland is now under the water.

Coachford

Coachford (Irish: Áth an Chóiste) is a village west of Cork City, in County Cork, Ireland. It is located on the north side of the River Lee. Coachford got its name from Áth an Chóiste (ford of the Coaches) as there used to be a narrow ford across the stream (which is now part of the river lee) This was flooded to make way for hydroelectric power and a lot of dwelling houses and farmland is now under the water.

Coachford was formerly connected by railway to Cork city with a narrow gauge railway, opened in 1888 by the Cork & Muskerry Light Railway. The line was closed in 1934 by the GSR.

Close to St. Olann's Well at Coolineagh, near Coachford, are the petrosomatoglyph footprints of St. Olann on a boulder.
