CORK COUNTY WAS “A BUZZ” FOR CULTURE NIGHT
Cork County Arts Officers, Ian McDonagh, has said thank you to all of the many thousands of people who got involved in Cork County’s second ever Culture Night which took place last Friday night: “This is a community event, organised by all of the people involved in the Arts, throughout the County.”
All over the county of Cork people flocked to venues, galleries, churches, historic houses, artists’ studios and cultural centres for this unique celebration.
Cllr Barbara Murray, Mayor of the County of Cork, said: “I was delighted to see so much activity at the Cork County Library and County Hall was a buzz with the craft stalls and the various performers. It was wonderful to see this area fully utilized. I also spend some time in my home town, Youghal, and it was absolutely brilliant to see people out and about enjoying all the different events that had been organised, and all for Free.
Culture Night is an initiative coordinated by Temple Bar Cultural Trust and supported by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht in partnership with Cork County Council, proudly supported by C103FM.
