Re: Re: Developments in Cork
Some great ideas about city attractions there.
One thing I’d love to see here – every Saturday in Recoleta (Buenos Aires) the local artists, crafts-people put up stalls around the paths of the local park. There was some great stuff there, rugs, mats, pictures, sculptures, musical instruments, mates (a traditional kind of tea cup). So you could wander around the paths to do some buying or just browse, or hang around the green areas where there were entertainers – comedy acts with family participation, capoeira etc.
A corner of Fitzgerald park would be ideal for such a regular event. Surely there would be a lot of interest from local artists. (Just as long as they’re not just hawking plastic shamrocks and “Kiss me, I’m Irish” t-shirts!)
