Cork Gig Guide: 23rd-29th February 2016


This week in Cork: Girls Names, Richard Hawley, The Great Balloon Race, Christy Moore, The Vincent(s) and more...

Due to being mid-house move this week's gig guide is all about the facts so nothing like the guff being spouted by the majority of Irish politicians for the past few weeks. See the gig listings below.
