Cork in Retrospect: Some Key Events


Every year in Cork is a great year. Deemed as a “City of Making” during its year as European Capital of Culture in 2005 and according to the Lonely Planet in 2010 as a “city on top of its game”, Cork as a place keeps trying to move forward. Below are just a cross section of the events that have taken place in Cork as photographed by myself. I was honoured to be able to witness and take part in some of the events below. Well done to all the organisers!
