The Clipper Marquee was the place to be last night as local band "Amadans agus Bodhrans" gave a rousing performance that had the Clipper Round the World crews shouting for more.
The evening got off to a perfect start as our own Dave Hennessy led his trio of musicians in a fine performance of traditional Irish music.
The Crosshaven set dancers gave an exhibition of Irish dancing and really got the crowd going as they invited them onto the dancefloor.
The Royal Cork Catering team surpassed themselves with a magnificent buffet in a specially constructed marquee which tasted even better than it looked – fresh fish, Bacon & Cabbage and Guinness Stew were amongst the Irish themed dishes on offer.
The festivities continue tonight and tomorrow – click here for details
