With great sadness, Cork Midsummer Festival has learned of the passing of Jane Anne Rothwell
It is with great sadness that the Board, staff and friends of Cork Midsummer Festival learned of the passing of the Chair of the Board, Jane Anne Rothwell.
Jane Anne became Chair of Cork Midsummer Festival in 2013 and led the Festival through a period of significant change with passion, dedication and humour. She touched everyone she met with her infectious enthusiasm, boundless positive energy, endless kindness and huge heart. She was a fearless advocate for the Festival, a tireless champion of Cork arts and artists, a constant bright and supportive presence. She will be greatly missed by her huge circle of friends, colleagues and relatives.
Our loss can never equal that of her husband Steven and her family, to whom we convey our deepest sympathy.
