Launch of Cork Heritage Open Day - 18th August 2012.

Cork Heritage Open Day 2012 was launched by Lord Mayor Cllr. John Buttimer on Tuesday the 7th of August 2012 in the City Hall Council Chambers. 

The Lord Mayor said that Heritage Open Day provided a unique opportunity to visit some of the city's most noted buildings. He thanked the proprietors of all the participating buildings and those who have given up their time voluntarily to organise events. He also said that Cork Heritage Open Day was unique in that is primarily about the effort of local people who volunteer their time and expertise to make the day the success that it is.

Lord Mayor Cllr Buttimer made special mention of the maritime themed event in the Millennium Hall, the Children’s Treasure Trail with prizes sponsored by the Everyman Palace Theatre and the Clarion Hotel, the Coal Quay festival and the Antique’s Roadshow event around the Great Exhibition in the Museum. 

The event was organised by Cork City Council with support from the Heritage Council and media sponsorship from Cork's 96FM and the Evening Echo.  

This event is an action from the Cork City Heritage Plan 2007 - 2012.
