Cork Women’s Mini Marathon 2016

The 2016 Cork Women’s Mini Marathon – Are you up for it?

Mini Marathon logo

Here in Cork, momentum is building for the upcoming Cork Women’s Mini Marathon taking place on Sunday, 27th September. 

Initial interest among the staff members and students has been very positive, and while it is still in the very early stages of planning, we are hoping that the school will have a good number of participants.

Marathon start line

The 5 mile race will start in the city centre on Patrick’s Street and the route will carry participants throughout the city to finish up at John F Kennedy Park.

Signup sheets have been posted on the notice boards in school to gauge interest, and plans for training groups and running schedules are also in the pipeline.

For international visitors, participating in this event will be an unforgettable experience that will add to the fond memories of the time spent in Cork!

August Bank Holiday – Films at Fitzy’s

Throughout the past few evenings this week, there have been outdoor screenings of some classic movies on the lawn of the Pavillion at Fitzgerald’s Park organised by Cork Film Festival in partnership with Cork City Council. This mini festival will continue each evening throughout the Bank Holiday weekend.

Films at Fitzy's

Beatriz, our summer intern from Italy, was at a screening on Wednesday night, and here is what she had to say about the event.

“Yesterday it was the first night of the “Films at Fitzy’s”, an outdoor cinema festival that will take place in Fitgerald’s Park from 29th July to 3rd August. The first screening was “Amélie”, a charming French romantic comedy. The atmosphere at the park was very cosy and cheerful, the audience was very wide and everyone brought his own blankets and cushions to stay warmer and more comfortable while enjoying the movie. You can also bring crisps, popcorn or buy some tea and candyfloss at the stands in the park. It was very fun to share this experience with my host family!  The next screenings will include “Amhrán na Mara”, the Irish version of the animation movie “Song of the sea”. It’s possible to book tickets online or to buy them at the park just before the screening (price 5€).”


The film screening schedule is as follows:

July 29 Amélie

July 30 Good Vibrations

July 31 Amhrán na Mara (Song of the Sea)

 August 1 The Third Man (Re-Issue)

 August 2 An American Werewolf In London
