MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT MICHAEL D. HIGGINS

I am delighted to send my best wishes to Cork City Ballet as they celebrate their 25th Anniversary production of ‘The Sleeping Beauty’ at the Cork Opera House.

Alan Foley is revered by generations of Irish ballet students but also by the many people who owe their love and appreciation of ballet to him. His devotion to the art of dance and his generous sharing of that devotion through his performances, choreography and dedication to developing new talent is something which we should be deeply appreciative of.

I know that there have been many celebrations of his incredible achievements during this, the 25th year anniversary of Ireland’s longest running professional ballet company. This performance of ‘The Sleeping Beauty’ is a great culmination of those celebrations and a fitting tribute to Alan and the dancers and staff at Cork City Ballet.

Go raibh míle maith agaibh go léir.
