Our Wets Cork branch invite you to join them for an outing to Harper’s Island. “Several hundred years ago, Harper’s Island was known as The Quay, a reference to the landing stage for lighters unloading cargoes of stone, sand, and lime for the city. The island’s population was always minimal. The migratory route the god-wits formed between Iceland and Ireland has inspired an educational link between an Icelandic school and one in Cobh. The centre was recently visited by Tómas Grétar Gunnarsson, who is a research professor at the University of Iceland as the centre establishes an international profile”
