We were delighted to see Skibbereen’s Time Traveller’s Bookshop featured in the Irish Times yesterday – Holger and Nicola Smyth have always been strong supporters of the West Cork History Festival. Their pop-up bookshop was a huge hit at the 2017 Festival and will be there again at the 2018 Festival.

Also in the Irish Times last Friday was a moving article about cillíns (unofficial graveyards) which included the research work of William Casey, West Cork historian and a speaker at the 2017 Festival:
