Cork Foundation‘s inaugural photographic Exhibition, as part of our Diaspora strategy with Cork County Council, Cork Home and Away has moved location. It is now on display in Cork Airport so that more visitors to our shores can see the beautiful sights of Cork. To celebrate this move we hosted a drinks reception on Wednesday 22nd of November from 5:30- 7:30pm at Cork Airport.
The County Mayor Declan Hurley and the Lord Mayor Tony Fitzgerald were both in attendance. As was Cork Foundation CEO Padraic Valelly.
“We are delighted to partner with Cork Foundation as part of our Diaspora strategy. It has been an exciting year so far, we have held four Diaspora training sessions and trained over 100 people. We have also helped to bring an extra 500,000 euro into our local communities. We are excited to see what next year has in store and we hope that more and more people will reconnect with their Cork routes”, Commented Declan Hurley, Cork County Mayor.
“It is great to see the impact that Cork Foundation is having on the local Community. It is so important that funds go back into local projects in Cork and continue to help to grow social enterprise in both Cork City and County”, Commented Lord Mayor Tony Fitzgerald.
Cork Foundation’s main aim is to connect Cork network globally to support Cork people locally. We are thrilled that we can help to show case all that Cork has to offer through these wonderful images of Cork city and county. We hope that the many visitors to Cork will enjoy them as much as we have.
“The Cork Foundation is about Cork people and those with an affinity to Cork. It has been wonderful to partner with Cork County Council as they share our vision for Cork. We want to connect even more people with their Cork routes and help to give back to Cork in a meaningful way,” Commented Cork Foundation CEO Padraic Valelly.
“We would like to thank Cork Airport for allowing us to continue displaying our photographic exhibition to the people of Cork. We would also like to thank Bank of Ireland and photographer Michael O’Sullivan for helping us with our prize giving and of course to all the photographers who submitted their beautiful photographs. This event would not have been possible without all of your help and we are truly grateful.”
