After this, we will get an introduction to the architecture of Frank Gibney in St Cormac’s Park, followed by a visit to see the famous Kilcormac Pieta. After a break for lunch, there will a visioning workshop in the community hall as well as a chance to share some of the unique Workers’ Village culture.
