Title: Clonakilty Red Door

Location: Clonakilty, County Cork, Ireland

Clonakilty has a colorful and historical feel to it with its streetscapes renowned for its colorful and meticulously maintained shop fronts, pub fronts, general advertising and directional signs and street names. Extraordinary floral displays are also synonymous with the town. This is a real working class town, not just a colorful tourist town. One of my favorite towns in West Cork. Way back in 1997 I did a home exchange for a month in a town East of Clonakilty called Timoleague and spent much time here.

Clonakilty is famous as the birthplace of the Republican leader Michael Collins and Henry Ford and both are commemorated in the town. Michael Collins, one of the greatest military and political leaders in Irish History. He was born in Woodfield in 1890 which is about four miles west of Clonakilty on the N71 towards Rosscarbery. One can visit the remains of Collins's birthplace, which was burnt out by the Black and Tans in 1921.
