Speaking about Our Table, Gillian Keating, Chairperson of the Cork City Centre Forum, said:

“We are thrilled to bring this event right to the heart of Cork city on Oliver Plunkett Street during the Cork Midsummer Festival. Our Table is just one of the many initiatives that the City Centre Forum are working on to drive footfall and business activity in Cork.

“This event demonstrates what can be achieved through collaborative efforts and commitment from the business community that we are so proud of in Cork. I especially want to thank Jack Crotty and Conrad Howard for bringing this idea forward, and their work to deliver what is sure to be a spectacular event.”
