Fermoy

Fermoy is a town in east Cork. Located on the River Blackwater, it is 15km south of Mitchelstown, and 16km west of Ballyduff. Other nearby areas include Rathcormac, Castlelyons and Kilworth, all around 3km away. There are a number of industries in the town, whole local amenities include three supermarkets, pubs, shops, three secondary schools and five primary schools. The area is popular for salmon and coarse fishing with the scenic riverside walk at Barnane considered to be one of the town's most attractive amenities. The town's two annual regattas – usually in early May and early September – are hosted by Fermoy Rowing Club and serve to attract over a thousand visitors each day. For many years the main N8 Cork–Dublin road ran through Fermoy, and the town square was a major bottleneck on the route. However, the M8 motorway bypass, which included a new bridge over the Blackwater to the east of the town was opened in late 2006. The former N8 through the town is now a regional road, the R639, and Fermoy's traffic problems have been greatly eased. Cork Airport is approximately 45km south. A number of bus services also serve the area, with the Bus Eireann services from Cork to Dublin and Dublin to Cork calling at Fermoy.
