Cork people will love this UCC commissioned video and poem to mark Culture Night

UCC have released a video to celebrate Cork's Culture Night and highlight the city's designation as one of eight EU cities ‘ideal’ for culture.

To mark the occasion the college commissioned film-maker Jason Keane and award-winning poet Doireann Ní Ghríofa to capture Cork's cultural soul in words and images.

We reckon they have done a great job ...

Culture Night kicked off today with various events taking place around the city tonight.
