Mallow

Mallow is a town in Co Cork. It is the administrative centre of north Cork with the northern divisional offices of Cork County Council located here. It is about 35km north of Cork City and is located along the River Blackwater. The main street in Mallow is called Davis Street (although commonly referred to as Main Street), and joins with William O'Brien Street outside Mallow Town Hall. At the point where Davis Street meets O'Brien Street there is a monument to J.J. Fitzgerald, a little-known local politician who was instrumental in establishing both Mallow Urban District Council and Cork County Council. The development of Market Square (which contains both residential and commercial units) in 2006 effectively relocated the town centre, which is home to a wide range of shops, pubs, restaurants and other services and amenities. Mallow lies at the convergence of several important routes: the National Primary Route 20 (N20) north-south road between Cork (35 km) and Limerick (70 km); the National Secondary Route 72 (N72) east-west between Dungarvan (51.5 km) and Killarney (41.5 km); and the National Secondary Route 73 (N73) northeast to Mitchelstown and the M8 motorway (21 km). Mallow is also a stop on the Bus Éireann 51 bus service from Cork to Galway and the 243 bus service from Cork to Newmarket. Mallow is also served by the Citylink Galway-Cork Airport service. Meanwhile, Mallow Railway Station is currently served by trains to via Limerick Junction to Dublin Heuston, Cork and Killarney, Farranfore and Tralee. Onward connecting trains link Mallow via Limerick Junction to Limerick, Ennis, Athenry and Galway as well as Carrick-on-Suir and Waterford. The nearest airports are Cork Airport (42.5 km), Kerry Airport (70 km) and Shannon Airport (84 km). Kerry Airport is easily accessed by train from Farranfore railway station whilst Shannon Airport requires a train via Limerick Junction to Limerick railway station for a connecting bus. There is also a flying club at nearby Rathcoole. There is also a Helicopter Charter Company in nearby Dromahane. Other local amenities include Cork Racecourse, a cinema, a driving range and GAA, football and rugby clubs.
