The dedication of those in GROW and the goodwill of the general public was highlighted once again with the response to the fire at the Cork offices recently.
A fire broke out at the Grand Parade buildings on the night of November 12th causing extensive damage.
To help fund the cost of relocation a concert was held in the Rochestown Park Hotel on Wednesday December 4th featuring well-known local singer, Máire Ni Cheilleachair, Miriam & Declan O’Brien, and Ger Wolfe along with many of their friends from the music industry.
The event, which was compered by our own Christine Fitzgerald, and also featured a talk on GROW.
A huge amount of work has been put in by the team in Cork to organise the event in terms of putting together an impressive line-up and in promoting the event. There was also a big effort put into ticket sales and securing sponsorship of the event.
