There were two nights of music in the Quad in UCC, with concerts taking place on both Friday and Saturday night. Tommy Fleming entertained the crowds on Saturday night, in a well-attended fundraiser for a number of local charities. The night before, 2,000 people attended UCC Rocks on The Quad, a new event created especially for families of children with disabilities.

On Saturday, the Lee Swim couldn't have asked for a better day and crowds thronged the quays to cheer on the swimmers. 

Large crowds enjoyed the 10th annual Queen Of The Sea Festival in Youghal, raising valuable funds for Youghal RNLI and Youghal Community First Responders in the process.

The Bowling Green in Kinsale was packed on Sunday, as hundreds enjoyed a performance of Gangsts Granny, a play based on the David Walliams best-selling book. The event was organised by Words By Water, Kinsale's Literary Festival - which takes place in October. 

In nearby Sandycove, bathers and surfers cooled down in the water while enjoying Cork Distance Week, an open water swimming camp.
