CBA has an exciting programme of events lined-up for our June Feelgood Friday

After a hugely successful first month, Feelgood Friday is returning to Cork City again on 24 June.

This exciting initiative, led by Cork Business Association in conjunction with Cork City Council, sees retailers and businesses in the city centre come together to host a series of free events on the last Friday of every month.

Yet again, there will be a festival-like atmosphere in the city, with live music, free finger food, late openings, special offers, free drinks and lots of family fun.

Cork Midsummer Festival are bringing an explosion of arts events to the banks of the Lee.  Red FM will be patrolling the streets and will have lots of goodies to give away.  Not only that, but there will be FREE parking from 6.30pm to 9pm in North Main Street Car Park.

One of the highlights of this month’s event is a fun penalty shoot-out in aid of Cork Cancer Research Centre on Grand Parade where you can test your skills against teams from Cork City FC and Red FM.

Commenting on the success of Feelgood Friday to date, Lawrence Owens, Chief Executive of Cork Business Association, said, “We were blown away by the support for the first Feelgood Friday and hope now to build on that success.  Cork City is a really unique shopping destination.  Everything is within walking distance and it’s a lively and family friendly place to shop, dine and meet.  The idea behind Feelgood Fridays is to reintroduce shoppers in Cork to the fun of shopping in the heart of their City.  The last Friday of the month also coincides with pay day for many, so people want something to do on that day – and we’re hoping Cork City will be top of mind!  We are encouraging businesses across our wonderful city to make an extra special effort for their customers for this month’s Feelgood Friday, so come along and experience Cork at its best”
