THE rain has finally taken a break, temperatures are rising and we now have the ultimate sign that summer has reached Cork city - Feel Good Friday is back.

The joint initiative of Cork City Council, Cork Business Association and Cork Chamber, which runs once a month during the summer, aims to get the weekend off to a flying start.

Organisers promise a festival-like atmosphere in the city, with live music and entertainment on the streets, free finger food, late openings, special offers, drinks specials and lots of family fun.

The idea behind Feel Good Friday is to reintroduce shoppers in Cork to the fun of shopping in the heart of their City. The last Friday of the month also coincides with pay day for many, so people want something to do on that day – and we’re making sure Cork City centre is top of their mind!

The team at Music Generation Cork City have embraced this week’s Feel Good Friday as a part of their MayHUM Festival.

The crew have put together a stellar line-up of events on Friday, with “Random Acts of MayHUM” taking place throughout the day. People in Cork can see these talented performers popping up across the city from noon onwards - everywhere from the Kino to the English Market and from brass bands to rappers.

There is also a free lunchtime concert featuring young pianists and flautists in the Crawford Art Gallery from 1.10pm, and a lively lunchtime gig outside Brown Thomas. For full details, see

The Republic of Work is offering startups the opportunity to work there for the day and avail of time with their mentors and many other businesses and retailers will be getting involved around the city.

Don’t forget, you can still avail of the Black Ash park and ride service for free from 12pm or get four hours parking for the price of two between 12pm and 6pm in North Main Street and Paul Street carparks.
