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 Carrs Hill Famine Graveyard.
In 2017 and 2018 Rubicon Heritage undertook pre-construction archaeological works along the proposed N22 Baile Bhuirne to Macroom Road Scheme on behalf of Cork County Council. The project was divided into three lots, with Rubicon working on Lots 1 & 3. The route had been subject to archaeological assessment and geophysical survey prior to the commencement of Rubicon’s involvement.
