On behalf of the Cathaoirleach and Members of the Fleadh Executive Committee I write to thank you and your team for your work and support in the delivery of Fleadh Cheoil na hEireann.
The Committee are delighted with how the overall celebration of Irish culture was delivered and we have received very positive comment in regard to the management of this year's event.
Our thanks also to your cub-contractors who supported the delivery.
To your own team, sincere thanks to all for their work and professionalism throughout the week.
Having attended events planned and managed by Safe Events, they were the obvious choice for us for Fever Pitch.
We wanted an experienced industry partner to help deliver the Festival and we felt from the first meeting that the Team in Safe Events would be just that. They guided us through the whole process. It wasn't always straightforward, for a variety of reasons, but the end result was superb.
We look forward to working with them again in the future.
We were delighted to have Safe Events working with us on the Wild Lights events.
A zoo is a complex environment at the best of times. When we decided to run the Wild Lights events we understood that utilising the zoo as an event site would come with challenges.
Safe Events worked closely with us and all our stakeholders to establish plans to ensure a safe site and fantastic experience for all our visitors.
Bray Air Display worked with Safe Events. Their input and professionalism ensured the success of the event.
Thank you so much for all your hard work & support at the Ploughing Championships.
You constantly look to help out on all matters and make things really straightforward for the NDC.
For the Jesuit community in Ireland, the Beatification Ceremony Event of the Venerable John Sullivan SJ marked a significant milestone. With over 2,000 people in attendance, a safe and enjoyable event for all was our objective.
I was very happy with the work of Safe Events, who ensured the safe ingress and egress of all pilgrims to the church, an outdoor walled garden space with temporary structures and the O’Reilly Theatre at Belvedere college.
The team at Safe Events wrote a detailed, and more importantly, specific, Event Management Plan along with pre-event and onsite coordination with An Garda Siochana and our security partners.
Happy to recommend their work and commitment to safe and enjoyable events for all.
The Safe Events Team worked with us on Love Sensation gig and, as usual, they got the job done.
Everything from queueing to cloak room, from crowd flow to medical cover, they were on top of, like they always are.
They make running events in here so much easier and they work well with the retailers, the property managers, the insurance company and everyone who needs to be on board.
We are happy to have them.
We have worked with Safe Events on the Race Series and Marathon for the past number of years.
They have provided a comprehensive and very professional service to us in this time.
The team at Safe Events have such an in-depth understanding of our events and their experience helps us to continuously improve our overall approach to event safety and process development.
We have great confidence in their ability to continually enhance our events and would strongly recommend Safe Events to any event organiser.
Following successful tender processes Louth County Council engaged Event Management, Event Production and Event Safety services from Cuckoo Events for the Irish Maritime Festival at Drogheda Port since 2015.
As the Festival Manager for Louth County Council I can confirm that the service provided by Cuckoo Events for the Maritime Festival was excellent delivered in a very professional manner and with great teamwork from the Cuckoo Events crew prior to the Event an onsite during the Festival.
Cuckoo Events coordinated and worked with all the stakeholders to ensure that the event ran smoothly resulting in a very successful event for the Council.
I am very conscious of ensuring every aspect of the event is as well planned for and managed as possible and I want to use competent and trustworthy contractors and suppliers that I can count on.
I personally received great feedback from the statutory bodies afterwards regarding the Safe Events / Cuckoo Events team and their professionalism.
I continue to have the utmost confidence in them to deliver a competent team and a calm team leader.
I highly commend Safe Events for the job they did on our festival. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Mags, Mark, Martin, Elaine and the entire team.
It was obvious from the outset that Cuckoo were engaged and understood the subtleties and special nature of our event, while coping with the large numbers it attracts.
They were always willing and able to listen and take our needs on board, and were proactive and flexible in their approach. I can't wait to work with Safe Events again, and am delighted to recommend them for any occasion.
Safe Events provide a number of our Senior Safety personnel for the parades in Swords and Blanchardstown each year. With over 20,000 spectators to keep safe at each event, plus all the participants, it's vital for us that we have experienced and reliable eyes on the ground to ensure all runs right.
The Safe Events Team integrates seamlessly with us at this stage and it's that level of familiarity and shared understanding that helps us host large events safely in the Fingal area.
It's hard to imagine doing these events without having Safe Events there with us.
We engaged Safe Events as soon as we knew Bremore Castle was to be the venue for this Kodaline event. It's a castle being restored and is not a venue in the traditional sense.
Safe Events worked with us to very quickly establish if it would work and how it would work. They assessed and addressed the hazards and risks and proceeded to develop an EMP that would see the event go ahead within the timeframe available.
They worked with us on the night to implement the EMP and the event was amazing. I can't imagine it being as special in a 'traditional' venue. Bremore Castle was the perfect venue for it.
I had the pleasure of working with Cuckoo Events / Safe Events for a food festival in Temple Bar.
Boy, was I glad I had them by my side, from start to finish, they minimised my stress while ensuring that we had a safe, fun event.
I will definitely use their services again and have recommended them to others.
Cricket Ireland brought Safe Events on board to look after the licensing and Event Management Planning for the One Day International Cricket match between Ireland and England in Malahide. They worked closely with ourselves in Fingal County Council and all stakeholders to ensure the event was safe and successful.
Mags, in particular, was invaluable during the entire process, ensuring all elements of the build and break were conducted safely. Having such an experienced Safety Officer oversee the whole thing takes the pressure off.
As usual, Safe Events delivered for us.
Cuckoo / Safe Events achieved a difficult balance, ensuring that the health & safety of all attendees was a priority, while providing a fun-filled, informative day out for the students with lots of engaging activities.
The event was a great success, in no small part thanks to the Cuckoo / Safe Events Team and particularly Elaine. The continuous communication in the run up to the event was invaluable and they were always on hand to help with any last minute queries or requests.
This is the 1st in a series of blog posts / content pieces we are doing around what we actually do as Crowd & Event Safety specialists. The idea is to give an insight into the types of tasks we take on as part of our work for events and festivals etc.READ MORE
