Inheritance: Heritage & Memory in The Lee Valley, Co. Cork

Inheritance explores the parishes of Aghabullogue, Inniscarra, and Ovens on the northern valleyside of the Inniscarra Reservoir, Co. Cork. Through fieldwork and interviews with local people, Kieran McCarthy focuses on several aspects of the region’s cultural heritage, providing insights into place-making, community roots, and identity. This work dabbles in the architecture of heritage and its interaction with life in an Irish river valley. The book is focused on the beauty and structure of "things," which highlight, debate, and celebrate our cultural heritage not only from the past but also what we have inherited in the present. The book is a study of the rich language of images and symbols that are so inherent in rural environments. In fact, the many monuments on the local landscape could be described as part of a vast and varied open-air history book just waiting to be read.
