Cork Parish Hosts Concert in Aid of Cork Penny Dinners

Recently, the Church of St Mary and All Saints’, Glanmire, County Cork, hosted the second concert of its annual Winter Concert Series.

The concert was well attended and a retiring collection was taken in aid of of one of Cork’s oldest charities: Cork Penny Dinners. An AMAZING €1383.60 was raised

The audience were treated to a wealth of local talent, including the choir of St Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church, Riverstown, the Carrigtwohill Folk Choir, and students from the Cork ETB School of Music.

The Rector of Cobh & Glanmire Union of Parishes, The Revd Paul Arbuthnot, commented:

It was a delight to welcome the rich variety of local talent to St Mary & All Saints’, Glanmire. The Winter Concert Series raises much money for local charities, and we wished to help and affirm the wonderful  work of Cork Penny Dinners. Their work is especially valuable as we are in the midst of a shameful housing and homelessness crisis in Cork at this time.
