Thanks Dan, I’ll give it a try, I had heard about the Lee Maltings but havn’t a clue who administers that, I know its UCC but beyond that ???
Cork Arts theatre is mad expensive and you have to be quiet while plays are on,
The Unitarian Church on princes Street is not always available, Cork Deaf Centre, Not always available and as for getting in touch with the Arts office in City Hall, I’d get word back from Elvis before they reply.
I’ll give the Firkin Crane a bell.
Middle Parish and South Parish Community Halls are also other options .
For the Maltings I’d call in there to security and ask them , or phone if they’re listed. Firkin Crane is good though ( and might be cheaper than 50 euros depending on room , length of time etc )
