Ring Of Cork Military History
Munster has had a long history of military activists, from the Vikings to the Spanish Amanda to Slave ships coming from Algeria. One of the reasons that the Ring of Cork was covered with Military / coastal fortifications around Cork Harbour. From Ballincollig Gunpowder Mills to Camden Fort Meagher to Spike Island, the Ring of Cork’s Military History can still be seen today!
