Cash needed (part 1)

The Sirius Arts Centre in Cobh needs your money.

You see, they have the builders in. Its a "long term plan for conservation" as opossed to just a lick of paint. "The project begins with much needed underpinning of this listed heritage building and repair of the sea wall." They point out that they are the only "major centre for arts and culture and its location in Cobh can only help support existing infrastructure in Cobh and East Cork through internationally recognised arts events, employment, tourism and community support."

The fact that they describe themsleves as "existing infrastructure" is a tad disturbing. The description of "only multidisciplinary arts centre in East Cork" is at least less torubling, and I suppose accurate.

Their "fundraising target for the first part of this plan is €500,000."

"To make donations or to discuss the possibility of making a donation in kind, contact Peggy Sue Amison, Arts Administrator at Sirius Arts Centre: (021) 481 3790 or send donations to Sirius Arts Centre, Old Yacht Club Building, Cobh, Co. Cork. You can also email us at: cohbharts@iol.ie. You can help make a difference by supporting your local arts centre!"
