Cork: Celebrating 40 Years of Peace Building

Fri 16 Oct 2020 by Evan Short

The Cork Committee of Co-operation Ireland was set up in 1979 to support and promote the work of the organisation in the region, building positive relationships between schools, youth clubs, community groups, business and statutory organisations in the region and in Northern Ireland.

At the end of 2019, a special event celebrating 40 years of peace building in Cork was held at the City Hall, where Presentation Secondary School Ballyphephane School Choir, 2 times winners of the Co-operation Ireland All Island School Choir Competition, performed.  Young people from the Cork Youth Leadership Programme, past and present, attended the event along with Lord Mayor Cllr John Sheahan.

John Mullins, Chairman, Tim Lucey, Ted Owens, Tom Daly, Barry McPolin, Declan O’Leary, Valerie O’Sullivan, Donal O’Grady, Jim O’Donovan, Derek Nolan.

Co-operation Ireland would like to thank the members of the Cork Committee, past and present, for all their support, time & encouragement over the past 40 years.
