Ride from Blarney to Cork on Cork & Muskerry Light Railway 1902

2 mins United Kingdom

Beginning with panoramic shots of the Colthurst estate and Blarney Castle - already a popular tourist attraction by the Edwardian era - this film takes a trip through County Cork via Leemount and Carrigrohane stations. It was filmed in late spring and shown at the Cork International Exhibition, which opened in May 1902. The light railway, which shared the road with other traffic, closed in 1934.
