Re: Re: Developments in Cork
There’s no doubt that the ability of the city to organise outdoor artistic/sporting/cultural events has been lifted since 2005 when it had hands on experience and certain events are advertised very well and most events (advertising or not) are very well run.
I don’t think the city has fully learned from 2005 in terms of proper publicity, but I was a great believer then and still am now, that the population has a part to play by finding out what is going on and supporting it. Too many people moan about not knowing things are happening as if they expect the Lord Mayor to arrive at their front door and give them a lift into town for it.
Anybody who didn’t know the (very well organised) Cork City Marathon wasn’t going on needs more help than the City Council can give them!!
