Evelyn Cusack is coming to Cork to discuss your favourite topic
This might be the most Irish event to ever take place in Ireland.
Met Éireann Head of Forecasting Evelyn Cusack is coming to Cork in June to host a series of discussions on weather changes and warnings.
As you well know, chatting about the weather fills us with glee in Cork so the event, part of Seafest, is guaranteed to be a popular one.
In fact, a Dulux survey found that 60% of Irish people talk about the weather twice a day, with a quarter of people bringing it up at least four times a day.
Held in Galway for the past three years, Cork City Council and the Inter-Departmental Marine Coordination Group (MCG) will now present SeaFest on Leeside from 2019 – 2021.
Former RTÉ broadcaster Evelyn Cusack’s talk will be held (indoors, predictably) at the Marine Institute marquee.
There will also be engaging talks and films inspired by the ocean at Marine Institute’s The Atlantic Theatre, where award-winning wildlife cameraman Doug Allen will discuss his experiences filming BBC’s Blue Planet and Ocean Giants.
RTÉ documentary Ireland’s Deep Atlantic will also be screened. Check out the website for the full list of stuff to see.
Probably wise to bring a brolly too.
