There were jobs decentralised out of Cork City recently as well was it to Bandon or Macroom?
How do Cork people feel about it?
Personally, I’d have no problem moving to any of the places you mentioned even Clon but on spatial planning grounds only places the size of Sligo or bigger would work I think.
2,000 semi-state jobs including Failte Ireland would do Cork no harm and would aid your plans for a commercially viable trans-atlantic service.
