Ballinhassig is a village in Cork. It is situated 10.6km south of Cork City, just off the N71 Bandon road and not far from the source of the River Owenabue. Traditionally an agricultural area, Ballinhassig has seen economic growth due to commuting, being within easy reach of Cork City and the many multinational chemical and industrial facilities located in the surrounding areas. There are three primary schools in Ballinhassig, several pubs, a number of shops, three churches, the recently renovated Marion Hall, and a co-op. There are also a number of prehistoric ringforts around Ballinhassig, as well as a GAA club and a steam rally club.
