Re: Re: cork docklands
Well, which is it? It’s great to have a choice of venues, or one is all Cork needs?;)
Honestly, I think one may be enough for the forseeable future, but I’d rather leave it open and let the market decide what Cork can sustain. It will now be more difficult for a second consortium to come forward with a second proposal, as they’d be competing for events against a (effectively) subsidised competitor; regardless of the merits of their design or location.
The point remains – why was the HH selected, and why the secrecy over the selection process? Those questions are anything but indicative of a clear and open process.
I’m very happy with the choice of location; but I’m concerned about the 8m invested; and angry about the secrecy over the selection.
