The Glanmire Active Retirement Protest March “Against All Cuts To Young And Old” in Budget 2014 begins at Cork Opera House at 12.30pm.
There better be Barry’s.
Cork band Fred have called it a day, after 15 years.
In a statement on their website Fred sez:
“We have enjoyed our time making music together immensely but simply it’s now time for us to move on. We would like to thank all our fans, friends, families who have supported us over the years. We also offer a big thank you to all of the artists who we have had the pleasure of sharing stages with and the all of the venues who continue to promote live music.”
Their farewell tour includes gigs in Whelan’s, Dublin on Thursday, December 5; De Barra’s in Clonakilty, Co. Cork on Friday, December 13; and Róisín Dubh in Galway on Sunday, December 15. Their final gig will be in The Pavilion in Cork, on December 28, when they’ll attempt to have all present and previous band members on stage together.

“Staying in a mate’s house in Cork where they’ve been looking after this dog [above] who turned up at his house about two weeks ago. He’s been looking after the dog since as the dog seems old, but really would like to return her to her owner. She was wearing a pink collar when she turned up to my mate Gav’s house. I’m in Cork over the next couple of days and can return her.”
She was found on Wellington Road in Cork city.
Mallow, Co Cork tonight
Thanks Peter Hayes
Sad to hear of an institution (estd. 1992) like An Bróg is closing on Oliver Plunkett Street, Cork.
Anyone remember De Lacy House?
