A celebration of Lifelong Learning will take place in the Carrigaline Community Complex on Saturday 24th of March between 11am and 3pm as part of this year’s Cork Lifelong Learning Festival. Entry to the event is free and learners of all ages are welcome to come along to find out about the many activities and learning opportunities that are available in Carrigaline.

The showcase will have on display many learning activities and local services that are available in the Carrigaline community. The learning celebration is being organised by the Carrigaline Community and Education Network and the programme will have musical performances by Carrigdhoun Comhaltas and the Harmony Sounds Choir.

For younger learners there will be a Nursery Rhymes workshop and for the not so young a Fun with Dance for Senior Citizens demonstration. Other activities include drama performances and a sewing workshop titled Make a Cushion from and Old Shirt!

The learning showcase will have a series of stands providing information about the broad range courses which are available locally in the Carrigaline community, whether it be for someone wishing to take up a part time or certified course, or for someone wanting to learn a new skill or hobby.

The Cork Lifelong Learning Festival prides itself on its motto to investigate, celebrate and participate and the Carrigaline Community & Education Network are inviting everyone to come along to their showcase to do the same.
