Festival Fever arrives to Cork

Posted: September 20, 2011

With so much happening in Cork over the next few months, is there really any other place to be.

Festival fever starts at the end of this month with The Beamish Cork Folk Festival (28th September – 3rd October). Featuring Folk and Trad artists from around the world this festival is fast becoming a must-be-seen-at occasion on the events calendar.

At the end of October over the bank Holiday weekend and Halloween Festivities (28th – 31st October), Cork again becomes the places to be as some of the world’s finest jazz musicians will be performing in venues throughout the city as part of the internationally renowned Guinness Cork Jazz Festival.

Then just a week later and barely time to recover, it’s the Corona Cork Film festival; starting on the 6th November this festival will be showing a wide range of films from around the world and is a major essential showcase for Irish film production.

If visiting Cork for the Festivals or the atmosphere or just looking to stay a few days or for a little bit longer, a conveniently located hotel in Cork that offers superb comfort and deals is the Silver Springs Moran Hotel.

The precious thoughts I seldom say
The love I feel for you each day
The understanding that we share
The joy I feel cause I know u care
oh how I wish that we could only share
A night at Moran’s Hotel and not have a care : )
Please make this valentines one to remember

2. Tracey Broderick

To say i love u
Would not be a lie
For u my darling
U know i would die
To go to the moran
and see a great show
and to top it all off
Have my hubby in tow

3. Jenny Bourke

You ask me why I love you
My love, I’ll try to tell you
It’s the breath of life you’ve given me
It’s the smile when I smell you
It’s the blueness of your eyes
It’s the way you say you care
It’s the way my soul is incomplete
Whenever you’re not there
It’s the way you hold my hand
The way you look into my eyes
The way you capture my attention
The way you strip me of disguise
It’s the way you make me feel complete
The way you make my smile laugh
And how so naturally you make me see
You’re my other half!!

4. Nicola Brennan

There once was a man who was fine
who brought me to the red cow to dine
He showered me with roses
give ya a clue, he’s not Moses,
of course he’s my sweet VALENTINE

5. Eoin McNamara

It was in the Red Cow when I saw a sweet lass
I just didn’t know how to approach her with class.
I took a quick drink, she had beauty and grace
Her golden brown hair swept over her face.
I plucked up the courage to say my first words
I wanna be her prince in a world full of nerds.
“You look like a princess” is what I meant to say
Instead it came out as “D’ya like Home and Away?”
Lucky for me she was a fan of the Soap
And we chatted away without having a grope!
She wasn’t that type, she wanted to wait
That was fine with me too, I knew it was fate.
Seven years later and we’re still going strong
We’ve started to talk about our wedding song.
You know that it’s love when you feel it inside
It’s a natural feeling, with nowhere to hide.

The winner will be announced on Friday the 11th of February!
