Cork Heritage Open Day 2012
18 Aug 2012 -
11.00 - 4.00 pmTickets: €Free The Firkin Crane has gone through many guises since it was erected as part of the Butter Market in the 19th century: the current rotunda building has been a dedicated cultural centre since the 1980’s.
This unique building will be open all day as part of Cork Heritage Open Day organised by Cork City Council with support from the Heritage Council and DoEHLG.
In all, 38 buildings will open their doors free of charge, and members of the public are allowed a glimpse of some of Cork’s most fascinating buildings, ranging from the Medieval to the Military, the Civic to the Commercial and the Educational to the Ecclesiastical.
There are also 34 free themed events happening throughout the day all over the city! There is something of interest for everyone and a fun and entertaining day is guaranteed so we invite you to come along and enjoy Cork City’s Heritage Open Day experience!
This event is an action from the Cork City Heritage Plan 2007-2012.
Organised by Cork City Council, Cork Heritage Open Day celebrates Ireland’s architecture and heritage by enabling free access to properties & events of interest to the public that are either not usually open to the public, or would normally charge an entrance fee. Details of this year’s events and participating buildings appear on the website http://www.corkheritageopenday.ie
