Celebrating Cork Past Historian Of The Year


Each year the Celebrating Cork Past Committee acknowledges outstanding work in the areas of heritage and culture with regard to Cork City and County. This year, 2017, in grateful appreciation of his lifelong promotion of the history, heritage and culture of Cork, Dr. Éamon Lankford will receive the Historian of the Year Award. Dr. Éamon Lankford has undertaken tremendous work around the County with some of his greatest achievements including his work on Oileán Chléire and the Placenames Survey of Cork City and County (this unique and immeasurable resource is available for all to use, free of charge, in Cork County Library HQ). Also receiving awards this year are the founders of the Cork Jazz Festival given their wonderful contribution to the Musical ((Jazz) Cultural Life of Cork (with thanks to Ray Fitzgerald, Pearse Harvey and Jim Mountjoy). The recipients recently met with the Lord Mayor of Cork City Cllr. Tony Fitzgerald and the Deputy Mayor of Cork County on the day, Cllr. Marcia D'Alton. A lovely short video of the gathering has been put together by Corman Brenock, available to view by clicking the following link -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dLaBYHgCHOc
