CLOSED due to COVID-19

 

The Cork City and County Archives (CCCA) is a shared service and has been equally funded since its inception by each of its parent institutions, Cork City Council, Cork County Council and University College Cork. In 2006, the CCCA moved to a new purpose built centre, the Seamus Murphy Building, 33A Great William O’Brien Street, Cork, that offers the most modern facilities for the preservation and use of archives. This centre was built by Cork City Council.

The involvement of UCC in funding the CCCA reflects the fact that the Archives are a key repository for research by students and staff of the university, and other colleges and schools in the region. The archival collections principally relate to Cork City and County, and they contain unique information and documents relating to innumerable institutions, places, people and events. The Archives preserve over 26,000 boxes of material, which is one of the largest and most important cultural heritage assets held in Cork, or indeed throughout Ireland.
