Parishioners enjoy inaugural Picnic in the Park Concert
Despite overcast skies over one hundred and fifty parishioners gathered in Passage West Park on Sunday 11th July to enjoy a wonderful concert of music drawn from Movies and Musicals. It was lovely to see families sitting together, enjoying the music and the simple fact of being out and being together. For many of them it was their first outing together since lockdown began over a year ago which made it all the more special. The ‘Picnic in the Park’ series of concerts will continue throughout July and August and full details on the theme of each concert and how to book tickets is available by clicking here or on our parish facebook page ‘Harbour Parish Churches.’ Feel free to join us for our upcoming concerts. Tickets are free but must be booked in advance. The number of tickets is limited to 200 for each concert in compliance with Covid19 restrictions.
A sincere word of thanks to Mary Foley and Louise O’ Sullivan Geary who are the driving force behind the concerts on behalf of our parish and to the wonderful team of volunteers who are supporting them. Thank you to our fabulous guest artists, Ryan Morgan, Louise O’ Sullivan and Dan Twomey who gave so generously of their time to entertain us and Tom McSweeney who was our MC. We also would like to acknowledge our appreciation of our sponsors, Wisetek, National Event Hire and Chris Mee Safety Group for their generous support and to Cork County Council for allowing us the use of Passage West Park. There is an old Irish seanfhocal that says ‘Tosach maith leath na h-oibre.’ A good start is half the battle. Last Sunday was a wonderful beginning. We hope that you will join us over the coming weeks as we reconnect with one another and enjoy some time together.
