I see a book charting the history of one of the west Cork co-ops has been launched.

Written by former employee Chris Collins with the help of local historian Michael O’Mahony, The Story of Lisavaird Co-op 1925-2020 is a nostalgic read for the older generation and an insight for younger readers into the evolution of the co-operative since its inception. I was interested to see some background on the inclusion of the proposed amalgamation of the four west Cork co-ops and how it failed to come to pass.
