In 2014 Rubicon Heritage were commissioned by Cork County Council to undertake an audit of heritage assets owned by the County Council. The audit was intended to assess a wide variety of these properties by providing an overall background/description of the selected sites and identifying the main heritage characteristics and status/functionality of each. We have compiled a series of blogs based on the information gathered during the audit to highlight a number of the selected sites and the amazing archaeology in County Cork. This week we look at Midleton Library. The town of Midleton is situated 22km to the east of Cork City astride the main road N25 to Waterford. Midleton Library is located on the Main Street of the town. Although currently in use as a library, the building in question was originally constructed in 1789 by Viscount Midleton as a market house. It was also later used as a town hall. It is one of the most striking buildings in centre of Midleton.
