THE new Kanturk link road will tip a nod to north Cork’s lost railway network through the construction of a roadside monument made from old railway sleepers found during construction work.

A Cork County Council official said the salvaged sleepers will be placed on a plinth with an accompanying information board telling the story of Kanturk’s railway heritage.
