Anybody have more plans on what the plans are here?

I got in touch with the city council and they notified me that Contractors have been appointed to clear out the debris from the collapsed section, and to insert an internal steel frame to tie the walls back to and to support a new slate roof. This steel frame can then be used to support new floors / stairs etc once a new use has been decided for the building.

Thanks PingPong.

Tried CCC during the week and didn't get anywhere with them. Are they in control of the building? Or are the owners dealing with the building work now going on?

According to the AF2 Cork City Council are the clients, so they would be dealing with the building work. The city council are also looking for funding for the building and its new use.

Thanks PingPong. City Hall had no idea what I was talking about when I contacted them earlier in the week!

Any further news on this? What's the status of the house now, has it been weatherproofed?

This was taken today.
apologies that it isn't zoomed in, but was taken on a phone. Bigger version was too big a file to upload
Shows rear of the building and the exposed roof

Pretty depressing
