Tributes have been paid to Teenagh Cunningham, General Manager of Baboro International Arts Festival for Children, who passed away on Friday, 21 August.
“It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of our dear friend and colleague Teenagh Cunningham who passed away on Friday August 21st after a short illness. Teenagh’s enthusiasm knew no bounds and she will be dearly missed by all who were fortunate to know her,” said Baboro in a statement.
Teenagh joined Baboro in 2006 when she moved to Galway after several years in Kilkenny. “She embraced the city with open arms and we counted ourselves lucky to have found someone with such dedication, skill and tenacity to champion Baboro’s cause. Teenagh’s legacy will live on – she worked tirelessly and passionately for the rights of children in our community to have access to the arts through the annual Baboro Festival and outreach school projects such as BEAST!
“Teenagh will be dearly missed by all of us here at Baboro, and by her many friends and colleagues in the arts community both here in Galway, around the country and internationally. Thank you Teenagh for your inspirational commitment, your wonderful laughter and most of all for your friendship,” the statement reads.
“Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with Teenagh’s parents, sisters, brothers and her extended family.”
As a mark of respect Baboro’s offices will remain closed on Tuesday 25 August.
