The inaugural Cork Harbour Summer School

The first Cork Harbour Summer School will take place on Friday June 10th at the Custom House Offices of the Port of Cork The School will be opened by Simon Coveney TD, Minister for the Marine, Agriculture and Food and will bring together speakers from the principal authorities with responsibility for the harbour and people with a vision for the future of the harbour.

Cork Harbour is a treasure on our doorsteps that is not always fully appreciated by the people who enjoy it in a variety of different ways. Linked to the city by the estuary of the Lee, our harbour is an exceptional economic, natural, historic and recreational resource; a resource also for the imagination as attested by its presence in art.

The School will focus on many subjects from leisure in a working port, to history and heritage, marine recreation, leisure tourism, and getting people afloat. 

There will be ample time for mingling and exchange of views informally between contributors and audience, which is an important part of the school.

The Cork Harbour Summer School is part of Ocean to City, Cork’s Maritime Festival with a programme of activities from Friday June 3rd to Sunday June 12th..

RSVP no later than Friday June 3rd to Meitheal Mara at Crosse’s Green House, Crosse’s Green, mmara@iol.ie
