Bonfire Night Party in Pembroke Wood

There was a Bonfire Night Party in Pembroke Wood on Sunday night.  This was the second year in succession that the Residents Association organised a Bonfire Night Party and this year’s event was even bigger and better than last year’s.

Traditionally, four bonfires were lit throughout Passage West on the evening of the 23rd June.  But in more recent years, the bonfires had increasingly moved away from the traditional St. John’s Eve theme and towards an excuse for getting rid of unwanted rubbish.  So last year, in conjunction with the Cork County Joint Policing Committee, the town of Passage West offered itself as a pilot for implementing a bonfire-free zone.
