Fermoy, Co. Cork

Fermoy (Irish: Mainistir Fhear Maí) in County Cork situated on the River Blackwater 35 km (22 miles) north-east of Cork city. The name of the town comes from the Irish and refers to a Cistercian abbey founded in the 12th century and a ford on the Blackwater, around which the town grew up.

At the dissolution of the monasteries during the Tudor period, the abbey and its lands passed through the following dynasties: Viscount Roche of Fermoy, Sir Richard Grenville; Robert Boyle, Scientist ("Boyles Law"); and William Forward.

For the sporting tourist its main attraction is the excellent salmon fishing on the Blackwater, and angling for trout in several of the tributary streams.
