Additional Info

Film and sculpture come alive with story, song and music in the highly atmospheric underground chambers of Camden Fort Meagher, a coastal artillery fort in Crosshaven. Darkly torchlit, different smells and sounds bring you into a whole other world, to experience unusual spaces including an underground vaulted ammunitions room and the engine rooms, opened to the public for the first time.

Produced by artists Marie Brett and John McHarg in collaboration with members of the Camden Fort Meagher community and inspired by the Brennan torpedo - one of only eight in the world, its prolific inventor Louis Brennan was one of Ireland’s greatest engineers during the late 19th / early 20th century.

Supported by The Arts Council though an AIC Award administered by Create, Cork County Council Economic and Social Development and Cork Midsummer Festival.

Cork, Defended Treasure

For nearly 400 years Camden Fort Meagher, one of the world’s finest remaining classical coastal artillery forts, played its part in protecting Cork Harbour, Ireland and the west coast of England and Wales. Walls speak tales. Panoramic views across the harbour reveal further links in the defensive chain. See more.
