Interesting
The exhibitions, which are attractively displayed in a house in Fitzgerald Park, display life in the Cork region, from as early as prehistoric times. The collection of maces and other Corporation regalia includes the 1500 silver dart from thrown into the sea by Lord Mayors to mark the boundary of the city's jurisdiction. A model of the walled city provides an idea of the size of Cork in 1185. A reduced scale model of iron working methods in the Iron age represents history as far back as prehistoric times.
