Riverdance at the Marquee Cork on June 13th, a great day out (2)

Riverdance trip

Last Saturday over 80 members headed for the Riverdance show at the Marquee in Cork. At 11.30am a 52 seater Hallahan’s bus left the Park Hotel while the rest had decided to travel by car. Organised by our projects officer Mary Jean Timmins, the whole day out was a huge success. The ease of access to this fantastic venue, the glorious sunny day and the atmosphere generated by thousands of enthusiasts all added to the occasion.




On arrival we enjoyed a picnic lunch and from the opening at 2.30pm to the grand finale the Riverdance experience lived up to its reputation. Over 25 years all the superlatives have been used to describe the phenomenon which is Riverdance. Some of our members had seen the original show as well as other similar shows but as we boarded the bus at 5pm one felt the delight and satisfaction of a great day’s entertainment. A stop at Mahon Point for food and refreshments followed by a visit and session at the Brú na Sí Comhaltas centre in Youghal followed before we landed back at the Park hotel on schedule at 10pm.
