My name is Kieran McCarthy. Im a local historian, having researched and written two books on the subject of the Irish Volunteers in Cobh and East Cork. Its a subject Im passionate about and love relating to others. No matter how many times I do the tour with people, someone always asks a question from a perspective i hadn't encountered before, leading to an added experience for all involved. Only recently I had a young lady on the tour from Baltimore USA , whos late grandfather happened to be one of the Cobh Volunteer Officers in the story I was relating at the time. What an experience for us

Where to start… the tour was Amazing! Kieran is a fantastic storyteller, and it’s clear he’s proud of his heritage. Having an understanding of the Irish struggle for independence is crucial in order to appreciate modern Ireland and its culture, and Kieran does an outstanding job presenting this. Cobh is also a beautiful setting for a walking tour. For any visitors to this part of Ireland with a love of history, this tour is a must-do.

The tour was amazing, very interesting! We have have learnt a lot in this 2 hours long tour, where Kieran pointed out the most important sites and their importance in the 20th century Irish history. You can easily tell that Keiran knows everything about this topic and he is very passionate about it.
