Carrigaline Park

The People's Park

Location | Carrigaline, Cork

Carrigaline derives its name from Carraig Uí Leighin, a nearby out crop of rock where a Norman settler, Philip de Prendergast built his castle. Not far from this site People's Park is a setting that homes many species of animals.

The People's Park Pond overlooks the estuary and hosts a wide variety of wildlife.  It is an important habitat for a large bird population some of which are migratory. 

Carrigaline Ducks
The pond functions as a roosting and breeding area for the numerous birds that call the People's Park home. On autumn and winter nights they are joined by dozens of other birds which come from far and wide to take advantage of the nearby estuary.
