Ballyphehane/Togher Community Development Project is linking up with Tory Top Library Ballyphehane to celebrate the Bealtaine Festival 2018. This event is focused on celebrating the centenary of the vote for women and the achievements of women over the last 100 years. It also seeks to honour the commitment and achievements of local community women through the decades. There are three elements to the event. 1) The opening of the new revamped summer community garden in the library grounds with a 'Smashing Times Tea Party'. 2) A performance by Cór Na Laoi, Cork City and County Community Choir to coincide with the celebrations. 3)The opening of a Community Art Exhibition within the library with local community artists depicting their own take on important events that have occurred over the last 100 years which were due in some way to women’s involvement. A number of collaborative pieces representing the groups working with and learning from each other will also be displayed. The goal of this collaboration is to celebrate women’s achievements and to combine a number of community art forms in acknowledging and recognising the contribution of women in communities into the future
