“Oi, the shades!”

NB: ‘Shades’ is slang for ‘the police’ in Cork.

“Last time I went to Peace Park in Cork, it was filled with homeless people and I think they need some money.”

“We are giving the money to people in Cork that need it.”

“Everyone’s agreed that I can take £1.60 out for my bus ticket home.”

“I was the first to look up on Facebook about this and hesitantly turned some of the lugnuts. I texted my friend to come help me and we attracted some attention and opened the pig together. It was tempting but we all agreeed that giving the money to people in need was a good idea. Irish Cancer Society took most of the notes. While myself and some others took some and gave it to homeless. We also tried to explain to everyone what was going on. We offered people money and maybe because we’re Corkconians, we were all too scared to take money for ourselves. I guess when you dont earn the money fairly, you feel hesitant to take it.”

“On passing the pig in cork we decided a start would be to open the pig, not sure what it was for a crowed gathered and we researched a little After finally talking we decided Irish Cancer Society who were out collecting would get some. A condused homless man circling around would get some. 1 guy took some away for a homless man begging and a little to a busker trying to make it. Everyone in life may need a little help from time to time and the big definatlety helped .. the confused homless man smiled as a guy handed him money , he could now eat…the busker had the biggest smile as somone came to support him…. Who ever you are or where ever you are, the artist who created the idea of the pig. Cork Salutes you.”

“This is so tempting, but it’ll be on my conscience if I take the money

“First of all it tells me I have to agree with people on something, and that’s complicated.”

“I thought there would be some French currency, but I didn’t see any, which I thought it’s kinda weird.”

“It’s not Euro’s, so it’s a problem if you want to spend it right away”

Two people were asked what they would do with the money inside. The woman wanted to change the lyrics of the French national anthem because she found them too aggressive. The man would use it to help welcome the refugees currently at sea on the Aquarius boat, which the French government refused to welcome.
