A Tale of Cork

Age Range: All Ages
Location: Bishop Lucey Park
Time: All Day on 11th, 12th and 13th June 2021
Cork Community Art Link celebrates this Cruinniú na nÓg with an installation based on Cliodhna, an Irish goddess of love and beauty, who happens to be a patron of County Cork.
Clíodhna is said to have three brightly coloured birds who eat apples from an otherworldly tree and whose sweet song heals the sick. Once those unwell hear the sweet birdsong they fall into a deep sleep and awake after a period of time, healed from ailments and renewed.
You can visit Clíodhna and her birds and hear their song; a collection of poetry read by city residents of all ages and edited by Ruairí Dale.
A Tale of Cork has been funded by Cork City Council for Cork St Patrick's Festival and Cruinniú na nÓg.
No booking required.
