A Summer’s Evening at the Quad UCC

We are delighted to announce that Field of Dreams Down Syndrome Cork is one of 4 Charity Partners chosen to benefit from this year’s A Summer’s Evening on the Quad. Singing sensation Tommy Fleming will deliver a powerful performance of beloved classics and contemporary favourites on Saturday 13 July 2019.

Tommy is regarded as one of the finest singers worldwide, famous for his interpretation of “Danny Boy”, “Isle of Inisfree” and “Hard Times” all songs we know and love.  Tommy’s favourites also include “You Raise Me Up” to “Bridge over Troubled Waters”, “From a Distance” and “Something Inside So Strong” along with many more contemporary numbers.  

Tommy Fleming has a universal appeal to all ages and backgrounds and fans use words such as “deeply emotional, romantic and sincere” to describe his concerts.

UCC Healthy Food Initiative

Campus healthy food initiative

UCC announced a new healthy food initiative in partnership with Munster Agricultural Society. UCC are ‘growing their own’ and will be bringing the produce to the University for use in their kitchens. The students are delighted with the initiative, as are the staff. Healthy food, fresh from the source, is a key element to everyone’s diet. All good news for the students, many of whom are lodging and purchase their meals from the University restaurants.

All this is great news for Field of Dreams by Down Syndrome Cork. We are alongside the UCC land and it is envisaged that there will be a partnership of workforce, expertise and fun in due course.

UCC will be planting by the end of April. Hopefully, Field of Dreams will not be too far behind.
