Riverstick is a village in Ireland lying south of Cork, halfway between Cork and Kinsale, on the Cork to Kinsale road. The village is named literally, after the River Stick which flows through the village. The village has a growing population; several large housing developments have been built in the area in recent years.
During the course of the 20th Century, Riverstick supplanted nearby Ballymartle as the major village and population centre in the area. Ballymartle is now little more than a crossroads, although some of the older institutions associated with Riverstick, such as the GAA club still carry the name 'Ballymartle'.
