Suspected arson attack in Co Cork (RTE NEWS ONLINE)
28 August 2006 10:48
GardaÃ in Co Cork are investigating a suspected arson attack on the former John Barleycorn Hotel in Glanmire.
A fire, which broke out at around 3pm yesterday, completely gutted the hotel. It was the second blaze at the building in a week.
The former hotel was bought earlier in the year by a property developer.
However, locals have complained that since the closure the site has become a magnet for vandals.
This sounds so familiar, a contentious planning application, opposition from local residents, a well known building, lack of any adequate security and a mysterious fire…..lets all ponder that for a minute!!
:rolleyes: Moving statutes, spontaneous combustionâ€¦welcome to Ireland.
