Field of Dreams, Cork

Volunteers from O’Sheas Electrical and ESB with Denis Cambridge, ESB Networks, Karen O’Sullivan, Down Syndrome Ireland Cork and Brendan O’Flaherty, O’Sheas Electrical

On Friday 26th & Saturday 27th May 2017, a team of 20 staff volunteers from our own O’Shea’s Electrical worked with staff volunteers from ESB to wire the porta-cabins and public lighting in Down Syndrome Cork’s Field of Dreams. Several suppliers of electrical equipment in Cork also lent very generous support.

The site is the first of its kind in Ireland and will see three acres of agricultural land transform into an educational and work-based horticultural site.  The land has been provided by the Munster Agriculture Society who are partners with Down Syndrome Cork in this initiative.

About 95% of adults with Down Syndrome are unemployed, and the project will teach participants to grow their own fruit and vegetables. It will provide a range of training, education, and work opportunities for adults with Down Syndrome in a safe and inspirational environment. Award winning garden designer Diarmuid Gavin is contributing to the development of this unique garden site.

We are proud to work with the ESB to support such a great cause. Well done to everyone involved!
