In Cork, the annual Africa Day celebrations will be 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 will be launched by the Lord Mayor in Millennium Hall on Thursday 24th May, followed by a seminar; “African Migration: Motive, Challenges, Opportunities”.

Two further events will be held over the course of the weekend: Africa Film Day on Friday 25th and the Africa Day Family Celebration which will once again be held in Fitzgerald’s Park, on Saturday 26th. All are welcome to participate in the various events taking place, including the African Art Exhibition which will run over a number of days in the New Civic Office of Cork City Council.
