June - Non Fire Night (23/06)

June - Non Fire Night (23/06)


The Non Fire Night event, an evening traditionally celebrated in Cork City as “Bonna Night”, will take place on June 23rd. It is a collaborative event run in partnership with over 50 community and statutory groups across the communities of Mayfield, The Glen, Mahon, Knocknaheeny, Farranree and Togher.

Since its inception in 2007 there has been a steady reduction in the number of problem fires throughout Cork. There has been a substantial reduction in anti-social behaviour on the night and this cooperative approach has strengthened community links, with over 10,000 people attending the events across our 6 parks. “NonFire” night events are community designed events with each park taking is own approach to the family friendly celebration.  

 Cork City Council and Cork City Fire Brigade urge members of the public in the coming weeks to please not give out rubbish or support illegal bonfires and instead attend one of the organized events across the cities parks and green spaces.
