Skibbereen Community School student, James Hurley, did such a good job pointing out what was on in West Cork last weekend that we asked him to do the same for this weekend! Take it away, James...


Spring has officially begun and it is already clear that there is the same, highbrow quality that we always receive here in West Cork this weekend.

From comedy to cooking and pruning, here are five things to do in West Cork this weekend…

Table quiz fundraiser

Ilen Rovers GAA are hosting a table quiz night tomorrow night (Saturday 4th) in the Sibin in Baltimore, if you think you and a team of four are clever enough, the quiz starts at 8.30pm.

Comedy in Bantry

Apple pruning workshop

Ever wanted to give pruning apple trees a go? Well, this week, a workshop by Centre of Excellence for Climate Change and Sustainability (CECAS) in Myross Wood, Leap (P81Y192) will teach the basics of pruning mature trees to improve the crop and protect the tree's health.

Gardening gloves, secateurs and loppers need to be brought (if you have them!) and suitable outdoor clothes are strongly recommended.
