Council seeks grant to put 1601 Battle of Kinsale in the limelight
County council officials are seeking a grant application to put the 1601 Battle of Kinsale in the limelight. The executive hopes a grant application will be approved under the Town & Village Renewal Scheme to establish an interactive interpretive centre to detail possibly the most famous battle fought in County Cork.
Officials outlined the proposal after Cllr Rachel McCarthy sought a progress report on erecting interpretive signs around the site of the battle grounds.
Officials said there was scope for highlighting the battle even more if they secured a €50,000 grant which would enable them create the interactive interpretive centre at Kinsale Museum.
