Re: Re: Developments in Cork
😎 Cork City manager, Joe Gavin is to seek approval from Councillors on Monday night to purchase St. Lukes Church for the sum of 690,000 euro.
The manager was working behind the scenes for the past few months to purchase the Church from the individual who bought it in 2003. The price to be paid is the same as the purchase price in 2003.
Joe Gavin is currently negotiating with the owners of lands on nearby Mahonyâ€™s Avenue to provide a city park as part of the regeneration of the St.Lukes area.
:rolleyes: Cllr.B.Berminghamâ€™s inclusion on an all expenses paid junket to San Francisco seems to have gone to his head, he wants to â€œunstraightenâ€ Patrickâ€™s Hill and make it like Lombard Street.
Quote; â€Often billed as the â€œcrookedest street,â€ â€œLombard Street is San Franciscoâ€™s- and Americaâ€™s best known crookedest street. The steep, hilly street was created with sharp curves to switchback down the one-way hill past beautiful Victorian mansions, [built with eight switchbacks on a 40-degree slope]â€. The street is paved with bricks and is an amazing site to see. Hordes of tourists come every year to see this famous streetâ€
He also wants, â€œThe Installation of the unique San Franciscoâ€™s Cable Car from a suitable location in St. Patrick Street to the summit and return.â€™
All this from a Councillor that is incapable of getting a pothole filled, Fine Gael must be very proud?
