Live at the Marquee has proved years of great shows to Cork. Now another promoter is running a similar string of events. AT THE SAME TIME. This choice has to hurt both ventures. In the past we had a Blues Festival, then two, now none. We have two weak Film Festivals. Musgrave Park is surrounded very closely by thousands of residences. MCD are trying to Bully these Residents and to challenge Aiken Promotions. Results here are blatantly visible already with unexpected poor attendance. Judging from the Blues and Film debacles the future will see both gone, both weak, or one remaining but damaged.
