Cork Airport, one of the leading supporters of The Gathering 2013, has announced it will get fully behind this year’s St. Patrick’s Day Festivities by bathing the Terminal in green light for this week’s celebrations. This year marks the seventh successive year that the Airport has sponsored the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Cork City.

The airport will be providing entertainment to passengers and visiting tourists in the days leading up to 17th March including Irish dancing performances by Attridge Academy and the Cowhie Ryan School, as well as a recital by local flute quartet, The Fluteenys.

Cork Airport Director Niall MacCarthy said “We’re particularly excited about this year’s St. Patrick’s Festival, given that it coincides with The Gathering 2013. To mark our country’s national day, we are planning to transform the Airport Terminal and the surrounding areas into a sea of green light. We will be using special green  lights on the external façade of the terminal, as well as projecting green light on the car park gable and the interior windows.

The Gathering logo will be displayed by projectors across the terminal roof. We would be thrilled to see members of the public visiting the Airport this week to see the results of this once off ‘green transformation’. Just a tip though, it will be best seen at night!.”
