Mallow on the river Blackwater 35km north of Cork city, is a sugar manufacturing centre in the middle of a rich agricultural region. For centuries the place was an important ford in the blackwater, and up to a century ago its spa drew crowds of visitors,some of whom gave the town a certain notoriety, if the popular song the Rakes Of Mallow is anything to go by. Mallow was the birthplace of many famous people, including the patriot poet Thomas Davis and William O Brien, MP. The writer Cannon Sheehan, went to school here with William O Brien. Mallow is well known as an angling and hunting centre, there is also a race course and golf. In the town itself the picturesque half timbered Clock House, the Spa Well and the Old Mallow Castle are worth seeing.
