In Cork, Africa Day celebrations were organised by Cork City Council, in conjunction with the HSE and An Garda Síochána, as well as various NGOs and members of the African community. This year’s celebrations were launched by the Lord Mayor in Millennium Hall on Thursday 24th May, followed by a seminar; “African Migration: Motive, Challenges, Opportunities”.
Two further events took place over the course of the weekend: Africa Film Day on Friday 25th and the Africa Day Family Celebration which was held in Fitzgerald’s Park, on Saturday 26th. An African Art Exhibition ran over a number of days in the New Civic Office of Cork City Council.
