An opportunity to see rare items with a lecture on the 19th century Bryceson Brothers’ Organ now scheduled for refurbishment.
Reimagining Cork City: Lessons from the 19th century. Ten years after the devastation of the Irish Famine, the people of Cork City lifted themselves from the gloom and despair of that experience by a major cultural achievement: the building of the stunning Church of Saints Peter and Paul’s at Paul Street, Cork.
As Cork now tries to deal with the social and economic effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, a unique exhibition at Saints Peter and Paul’s offers an opportunity to see important historical and cultural items (vestments, marriage and baptismal registers and stained glass) linked with the 19th century rebirth of the city after the Irish Famine.
This Culture Night 2020 event will also include a lecture at 7.30pm on the cultural significance of the church’s magnificent 19th century Bryceson Brothers and Morten organ now scheduled for much needed refurbishment.
