street scene

Innishannon (Inis Eonáin in Irish) is a village on the main Cork-Bandon (N71) road in County Cork, Ireland. Situated on the river Bandon, its small Gaelic Athletic Association pitch tends to be flooded for eight months of the year. It has rapidly grown in recent years, due to its proximity to Cork and has now become a dormitory town for city workers.

Inishannon

Innishannon (Inis Eonáin in Irish) is a village on the main Cork-Bandon (N71) road in County Cork, Ireland. Situated on the river Bandon, its small Gaelic Athletic Association pitch tends to be flooded for eight months of the year. It has rapidly grown in recent years, due to its proximity to Cork and has now become a dormitory town for city workers. It is home of the author Alice Taylor, who wrote the bestselling To School Through the Fields, and Quench the Lamp, as well as many other novels and collections of poetry. The Inishannon bridge which crosses the Bandon river has been present in various incarnations since the 1600s. The original bridge was destroyed in the tidal wave backlash that swept Europe after the earthquake in Lisbon in 1755. The wave swept up the Bandon river, causing destruction and killing thousands from Kinsale and up along the river. The Bandon River, originally navigable to Bandon town, for the first English settlers, was permanently lowered to a much lower water level, making further down river Collier's key the closest reachable port.
