Cork Foundation is delighted to announce, as part of our Diaspora strategy with Cork County Council, that we are hosting our inaugural photographic exhibition competition, Cork Home and Away on Thursday 26th of October in Cork County Council Offices, Carrigrohane Road, Cork from 6-9pm.
“We are delighted to be partnering with Cork County Council on this unique event. It is so important to reach out to Cork people at home and away, and connect and link back with their Cork heritage.” Commented CEO Padraic Vallely.
Cork Foundations main aim is to connect Cork network globally to support Cork people locally and what better way than to show case all the talent that exists in Cork and to allow people to admire the beautiful sights of Cork city and county. Even when you leave our shores we know you keep these images with you and we want to celebrate that at this event. This is a great opportunity to find out what Cork really means to you.
“No matter how long it’s been when people leave Ireland, first, second, third generation, they still see themselves as Irish. This exhibition gives people the opportunity to celebrate their Cork roots” Commented Aine Collins, Chairperson of Cork Foundation.
“The Cork County Community Diaspora is a joint initiative between Cork County Council &Cork Foundation and we are looking forward to play an active role in reaching out and connecting with our international diaspora.” Mayor of the County of Cork, Cllr Declan Hurley said commented.
