The 11th Cork Lifelong Learning Festival will take place from Monday March 23 to Sunday March 29, 2015.

Cork Lifelong Learning Festival promotes and celebrates learning of all kinds, across all ages, interests and abilities, from pre-school to post retirement.

The festival’s motto is Investigate, Participate, Celebrate, and the public can do that by watching demonstrations, trying out skills, and seeing others, from the young to the old, show off what they are learning.

On Thur 26th of March, Liam Ó hUigín of Corcaigh Network will give a presentation and talk on ‘Illustrated History of Cork’ in the  Cork City and County Archives, Seamus Murphy Building, 32 Great William O’Brien Street, Cork.

Other presentations  that will take place in the Cork City and County Archives for Cork Lifelong Learning Festival are:

Tom Spalding (Mon 23rd) ‘Architecture and Buildings in Cork during the Great War Period’.
