What to do in Cork when you're lost...

Recommended Posts

This is a vaguely amusing anecdote and doesn't really belong anywhere else..

 

Yesterday was the "Day of Welcomes" to welcome 10 new EU members and Cork was welcoming Slovakia. We had a street market type thing which the Slovakian PM visited (I was nearly knocked down by the hordes of his security people). We also had a concert featuring local acts etc. The concert was on Patrick Street (main street) and in between acts the MC said that he was going to let a girl speak as she was looking for her friend.

 

Anyway the girl gets up and starts her speech - in French ! She was looking for her friend Maggie and the only other bit I caught was "le bateau a 17h30" ! So this poor girl was in Cork at 15:45 looking for her friend because the two of them were leaving on the Pont.

 

We never did hear if they met up..

I hope that they had a spin arranged, as it is a good spin from the city centre to Ring. And wasn't it great to see Pana without traffic! Regards Hinkley :)
