Description

Vivienne Ryan grew up in Marble Hall Park. She always loved reading and was very happy in her own company. She worked in administration with the Cork Choral Festival and the Cork Film Festival from 1969 to 1986. She recalls her job interview for this position, and remarks that she was one of the first full-time employees. She was a great admirer of the great energy evident in the office, the wonderful voluntary work undertaken, and the logistics involved in managing all the visiting international choirs. She recalls Prof. Fleischmann, who was constantly on top of proceedings, and his valiant efforts in attempting to secure funding. Financial difficulties arose in 1986, when her position in the office became untenable, much to her regret. She looks back fondly on those years, and on the success of the Muskerry singers, with whom she sang.
