Object description

Fort Davis , is a coastal defence fortification close to Whitegate, County Cork, Ireland. Together with similar structures at Fort Mitchell , Fort Camden , and Templebreedy Battery , the fort was built to defend the mouth of Cork Harbour. Though used as a fortification from the early 17th century, the current structures of the 74-acre site date primarily from the 1860s. Originally named Fort Carlisle and operated by the British Armed Forces, the fort was handed-over to the Irish Defence Forces in 1938, and renamed Fort Davis. The facility is owned by the Department of Defence, and is used as a military training site with no public access.
