Re: Re: Developments in Cork
In 2005 Cork was European capital of “culture” – which is not the same thing as saying that it was a capital of culture!
Apart from two notable exhibitions on James Barry and Cork Silver, the European Capital of Culture farce is a gross fireworks embarrasment best fogotten about!!
Not to be too pedantic, but wouldn’t being European Capital of Culture constitute being a capital of culture?
And even though the organisational skills of the committee left a bit to be desired, the place really is steeped in culture and fully deserved the acolade.
