Kanturk is a town in the north west of County Cork, Ireland. Kanturk is situated at the confluence of the rivers Allow and Dallow , streaming further on as tributaries into the Blackwater. It is about 50 km from Cork, Blarney and Limerick, and lies just north off the main N72 road, 15 km from Mallow and about 40 km from Killarney.
It is a small market town, which after many years with a static population has commenced to grow again. Apart from its creamery which produced casein from milk, a raw material for early plastics, its former knitwear facility now produces concrete flooring products. The town's schools include ColÃ¡iste Treasa and Scoil Mhuire.
