Public Workshop to inform Cork City’s Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme


Tuesday, May 26th from 6.30pm to 8.30pm, Concert Hall, City Hall

Cork City’s plans to commemorate 1916 will include a very wide and exciting range of cultural and community activities, involving young and old alike. As well as formal and informal commemorative events directly related to the Rising, we will be working with local historians, heritage groups and organisations, artists, poets, musicians, Irish language bodies, festivals – in fact everyone in our community – to ensure that 2016 is a truly memorable year.

On Tuesday, May 26th 2015, at the Concert Hall, City Hall at 6.30pm we are hosting a public workshop to afford everyone who is interested an opportunity to offer their own suggestions and listen to the ideas of others. Your ideas will then be brought forward to our 2016 committee to inform Cork City’s 2016 Centenary Programme.

If you are interested in attending, please register by emailing 1916@corkcity.ie or telephone 021-4924116 by 5pm, Friday 22nd May.

This is a great opportunity to have your say in the events marking this important year for Cork City and indeed for the entire country.

Please note, Cork County Council will also shortly be hosting a series of workshops throughout the County. For further information, please email conor.nelligan@corkcoco.ie or telephone 021 4276891.
