Pride of Cork Awards 2022
In recognition of the enormous success to date of Saint George’s Arts and Heritage Centre, the project was presented with a Pride of Cork Award in front of a capacity audience gathered in the convention centre of the Clayton Hotel Silver Springs on Friday 11 March 2022. The recipients of A Pride of Cork Award were honoured for our outstanding contribution to Cork city and county by Cork Civic Life. The awards were presented by Prime Time anchor woman, Miriam O'Callaghan. The guest speaker was the Minister for Foreign Affairs and the Defence Simon Coveney TD who spoke about the developments in Ukraine and on the importance of civic pride in our society.
A wonderful evening of food and entertainment and gifts were part of the celebration with recipients being presented with their Pride of Cork Award by the Chairman of the Judging Panel John Minihan. Included in the many worthy recipients and projects honoured by these awards were Cork Penny Dinners, The Irish Community Air Ambulance, Cork City Missing Persons Search and Recovery, RTE Late, Late Toy Show & Virtual Hug star Adam King & many others.
Our two new 5.5 metre-long banners will be going up on the outside railings announcing our plans and how we need help to make our dream a reality.
Featuring local talent Eamonn Walsh and Belgian singer 'Little Kim'. Both stunning singers and performers.
