Cork Airport is to receive 4 additional European routes with Aer Lingus, who will now base 3 Airbus A320s to serve Munich, Rome, Faro and Nice. In addition, Aer Lingus have announced they intend to increase frequencies and capacities on their existing European routes to Barcelona and Milan, as well as Amsterdam and London Heathrow. This is good news for Cork Airport who continues to see exceptional growth on all its continental European routes. Some people, remain a little disappointed about a failure to announce transatlantic intentions – but I believe this is partially due to the hype spurred up by the local media before the announcement was officially made.
Southlinch Theatres Ltd have received planning on appeal to re-open The Savoy Theatre as a nightclub. This is good news for Cork’s nightlife – as it has been a sorely missed venue among locals and will provide huge capacity for major entertainment events once again. 40 jobs are to be created as a result of this development.
-> Also, development group Lyonshall Ltd have announced the imminent construction of their 200m residential, educational and commercial development at the Ursuline Convent in Blackrock.
