We are celebrating Cruinniú na nÓg with two great events this year.

Join us on Saturday 12 June for the online launch of Around the World in a Song, a child's picture book, beautifully illustrated and with poems and songs contributed by people of different nationalities living in Cork City.

Later that day you can join an online Heritage and Wildlife Workshop.
