Cork GAA have confirmed that Cork County Senior and Premier Intermediate Hurling Championship will take place Sunday 20th October 2013 bringing the Cork Rebel Week to a close and giving Corkonians another great reason to come home for the week long event.
Cork Rebel Week 2013 will take place between the14th & 20th October, 2013. It will be a week-long celebration of “All things Cork” with a specific focus on bringing International visitors and family home to Cork County and Cork City throughout the week.
Tracey Kennedy, PRO of Cork GAA, is thrilled to be able to work with Cork Rebel Week and says “Cork County Board is delighted that our County Senior Hurling Final has been fixed to coincide with Cork Rebel Week. This is the key event in the Cork GAA calendar, and it’s very fitting that it will now play a key role in this celebration of all things Cork. The GAA at all levels is supporting The Gathering 2013, and this is our chance to be part of it.”
The initiative of Cork Rebel Week is to attract International visitors as well as friends & family of Cork living abroad to come visit and attend the various events and activities all of which will boost the economy and awareness of Cork during what is traditionally low season within the Tourism, Hospitality, Retail and Leisure Industries. The concept surrounding Rebel Week we believe will embrace the imagination of Corkonians living locally, nationally and Internationally with the strong potential of Rebel Week becoming a new annual event in the National Events Calendar.
Cork Rebel Week is all about FUN, while helping the Cork economy in the short and long term. Rebel Week needs buy-in from the People and Businesses of Cork to create the best “new” National Event as part of the Gathering Celebration 2013 that has the vision to become a New Annual Event in the National Calendar.
