Terence MacSwiney Memorial Museum

The Terence MacSwiney Memorial Museum is a small museum covering several national and historical themes. These include the Irish War of Independence period, archaeology, ecclesiastical heritage, agricultural history, the GAA and traditional crafts.

The museum is dedicated to the Irish patriot Terence MacSwiney (1879-1920), the Mayor of Cork who died on hunger strike in a British prison. Among the collection of exhibits are weapons, equipment and uniforms associated with the Kilmichael ambush, a famous incident during 'The Tan War.' There are also GAA memorabilia, a replica smithy, farm tools and some ancient artifacts.
