Coppeen Heritage Trail

The long awaited Coppeen Heritage Trail was officially launched at the society’s annual heritage week event. For years, visitors have often passed by the general catchment area of Coppeen, missing out in some of our country’s most important archaeological and historical sites. With the Coppeen Heritage Trail, visitors to the area can easily plot out their trip to the likes of Kilmichael and Beal na mBlath and all of the sites in between such as much valued Cahirvagliair Ring Fort.

The map will be erected in Coppeen Village in the coming months. In the meantime, here is a digital version for you to feast your eyes on.

      Hi Bernie,
      Great to hear from you, & good to learn that you were at our launch. Yes, the Kinneigh research project is ongoing & help would be much appreciated, especially from somebody whose ancestors are buried there. Our next meeting is on the 2nd Oct as you correctly stated & you would be very welcome. We are having John Sexton to speak that night. Unfortunately I will be absent on that occasion as I will be abroad, but hopefully we will meet sometime soon. Until then, take care, & thanks again for getting in touch.
