Sinn Féin spokesperson on the Arts and Heritage, Sandra McLellan TD, has commended all those involved in the organisation of ‘Culture Night’ yesterday evening, and wished it continuing success.
Deputy McLellan said;
“Over the past eight years, we have seen Culture Night going from strength to strength, and has opened up our cultural institutions to the public in a very unique way.
“It has expanded to become a truly state-wide event, taking in towns and villages all over Ireland, and I myself very much enjoyed attending local events in my home town of Youghal.
“On culture night we see events, exhibitions, performances, and concerts in a wide variety of venues and institutions. The event encourages people to explore their towns and cities, and to enjoy the rich and exciting cultural scene which exists in Ireland at this time.
“Culture belongs to the whole community, and Culture Night has been, and continues to be true to that philosophy, and I wish its organisers continued success.”
