Call for Participants

 Cork Heritage Week, a unique event which will showcase heritage and culture in Cork will take place from August 20th to August 28th 2011. 

Cork has a rich and diverse heritage and to celebrate Cork Heritage Week a series of events will be organised by Cork City Council, community groups, heritage and historical societies and individuals.
