I have just read through the catalogue for Culture Night and will probably try to get to the talk on Montenotte House and another on “Holy Wells: Exploring the Ritual and Custom of the Pattern Day in Irish Tradition”
There is so much that I would also like to take it but times clash. I will probably miss the lesson in grave rubbing at St Finbarr’s Cemetery, learning about the Doneraile Conspiracy, and those of the locality who served in WW1. ‘Bats – Myth and Reality’ at the Quaker Meeting House, Guided tour of the School of Music, photographic exhibition at St. Vincent’s, The Muskerry Train, as well as a Walking Tour from the Quad following in the footprints of famous and not so famous Cork Women are among the events that would also like to catch – if they did not clash.
I can understand the benefit of the publicity and buzz created by multiple events but it does leave a sense of disappointment of what might have been seen if carried out over a weekend rather than just one evening.
