The Cafe will be open throughout the evening for refreshments and tasty nibbles to complement the market,” Rose McKenna, Scrypt Cafe Bar.

Starting on Saturday 23 June in Triskel Christchurch, the series showcases predominantly Irish artists, featuring repertoire ranging from Baroque and Classical to contemporary, “Sound Bath” style works.
Cellist Aoife Burke, curator of the series, said, ‘I’m delighted to be part of this line-up of wonderful musicians and to have the chance to play myself in the beautiful surrounds of Triskel Christchurch. Given the high level of artistry of each of the performers involved, I am convinced the people of Cork will thoroughly enjoy these lunchtime recitals.’

Triskel, Cork’s Contemporary Arts Centre, has appointed Gillian Hennessy as PR & Marketing Manager. Having worked in the book publishing industry for over 14 years in various capacities, including event management and digital media, she brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to her new role.
Tony Sheehan, Artistic Director of Triskel, said, ‘We’re delighted Gillian will be joining us at such an exciting time in Triskel’s history. We turn 40 this year and will have a number of #Triskel40 events and initiatives that we will be telling everyone about in the coming months.’
Gillian, whose most recent role was Media and Marketing Executive with The Collins Press, said, ‘I’m looking forward to working with the Triskel team and telling the stories of the amazing artists, musicians and writers who love coming to perform in the beautiful Christchurch. It’s a challenging time to be joining an arts organisation and I know the passion of the people at Triskel and in the wider Cork community will make this such a positive experience.’
Triskel Arts Centre was founded in 1978 and has served as Cork’s Contemporary Arts Centre since then.

Triskel Christchurch Cinema is proud to launch +Short Film, a dedicated initiative to screen a short film each month as support to one of the feature films in the regular programme.
Chris O’Neill, head of cinema at Triskel Christchurch says “+Short Film has been something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. There was a period of time when short films frequently played in Irish cinemas with feature length movies and I think it’s a great idea – an audience comes to see a film and is introduced to this other work they may otherwise have seen. Sadly, cinemas stopped regularly screening short films in the eighties which is a reel shame. Therefore, I’m delighted we are able to invite these talented filmmakers to show their films at Triskel“.
British Director Clio Barnard’s feature film Dark River starring Ruth Wilson will be screening at Triskel Christchurch from the 18th until the 21st of March and will be accompanied by the short film Answer Print. Barnard welcomes the initiative to include short films with the feature length programme. She says “Answer Print is exquisite – incredibly beautiful and highly skilled filmmaking – I’m very proud and excited that Dark River will be projected with Mónica Savirón’s film“.
Answer Print directed by Mónica Savirón is a film in continuous deterioration. It is made with decaying, turned magenta sound and silent 16mm films from different stocks and genres that had been discarded by others. This avant-garde short film received its world premiere at the New York Film Festival.
+Short Film launched in January of this year with Everything Alive Is In Movement, a Cork-made short film directed by Linda Curtin that won the Best Cork Short award at Cork Film Festival 2017. This accompanied the acclaimed Cate Blanchett art exhibition-feature film crossover Manifesto.
