Things to do in Cork in August

Summer is over and Autumn is upon us. This does not mean that all is quiet in the City of Cork. There are still lots of events to keep you busy. There are ongoing events such as Ceili on the Lee and the trad sessions in the pubs. As usual there is something extra going on.
