Tory Top Library

Tory Top ExteriorCork City Libraries opened a new and attractive local library in Tory Top Road in September 2005, near the Ballyphehane Community Centre.  This replaced the earlier smaller library which operated from 1974 until 2004 on part of the same location.  The new library includes a community room to accommodate activities organized by the library or by other groups/organizations.  Uniquely among Cork City Libraries, the new Tory Top Library incorporates an enclosed garden (375 sq. metres).
