Right now I’m working for Cork Midsummer Festival, managing all things communications and marketing — basically making sure everyone in the city knows what’s happening as part of the festival! I’ve always had a grá for the arts and culture, and the festival is an incredible way to be part of it.
We work with an amazing line-up of artists each year, from home and away, and this year will be no different — running until June 23, it will feature artists from all over the world (and of course, Cork!). It’s a real privilege to work with artists and getting to support the work they produce even in some small way.
Cork has an amazing artistic community of makers, venues, and partners, which we get to showcase each Midsummer, alongside our international visitors.
Either way, once that is done I usually move on to spending time around a table with friends — whether that is in the pub with a drink, or in someone’s house over dinner, probably ‘debating’ some trivial matter that gets less and less trivial as the evening progresses!
For a quieter Friday, it might be a long walk down The Marina then the couch at home with beers and a book, or an episode of whatever boxset I’m watching at the time.
