Carrigaline Community School



Ireland Cork 

Carrigaline town is 12km from Cork City and 5km from Ringaskiddy Ferryport or Cork Airport. Famous for its pottery, Carrigaline is one of three satellite towns built around Cork City. It is the largest in the Owenabue Valley, offering the visitor a very comprehensive range of services and facilities. Currabinny Forest Trail is just a short distance east of Carrigaline and represents one of many scenic walks in Carrigaline. The scenic walk and surroundings at Drakes Pool cannot be missed, this beautiful estuary lies between Carrigaline and Crosshaven. The name reveals the linkage to Sir Frances Drake who in 1743 took refuge in these waters from the Napoleonic forces as they patrolled around Cork Harbour. His hiding place worked and he lived to fight another day. Drakes Pool is now a popular shelter point for contemporary yachts and boats.
