We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 10th Jan. 2021 at 7pm on C103. (S.R.)
In the middle of the 18th century, Kerry was making a name for itself in tourism circles. There was a desire in Cork to connect with their nearest neighbours.
As the road network was virtually non existent, a John Murphy from Castleisland was commissioned to build a 56 mile long stretch of road linking Killarney with Rathmore, Millstreet and Cork City.
He would have to include a total of 24 bridges along the way and raise the money himself to do so.
Having completed the work, Murphy was in financial ruin, but his road network helped one industry to thrive and flourish.
