Our 10th Festival!
The Cork Mother Jones Committee wishes to announce that the 2021 Spirit of Mother Jones Festival will take place on the final weekend of November (Thursday, November 25th – Sunday, November 28th.). This will be our tenth festival, and we are eagerly looking forward to it.
“We are absolutely delighted to announce that our tenth annual Spirit of Mother Jones Festival will be held later this year. The dates for the four-day festival will be from Thursday 25th November until Sunday 28th November 2021 inclusive.
We are aiming to have the festival at venues in and around Shandon as usual although this is dependent on the Government Covid-19 rules which apply by November, however we remain very optimistic that these will permit gatherings and meetings by this time.
In case there remain issues with Covid-19, we can confirm that as a contingency we will also prepare a full online festival.
The Cork Mother Jones Committee is determined to ensure there will be a Spirit of Mother Jones festival in 2021 and we are working towards achieving that outcome.”James Nolan spokesperson for the festival
Full details of our festival partnerships, music and many other events will be announced over the summer/ autumn as they are confirmed.
The expanded story of Cork-born Mary Harris/Mother Jones and the extraordinary role of the Irish Diaspora in the organisation of the radical trade union movement in America is now freely available to all on our festival website.
It has been updated significantly during the course of 2021, and this will continue regularly as more information becomes available.
