:rolleyes: Cllr.B.Bermingham’s inclusion on an all expenses paid junket to San Francisco seems to have gone to his head, he wants to “unstraighten” Patrick’s Hill and make it like Lombard Street.
Quote; ”Often billed as the “crookedest street,” “Lombard Street is San Francisco’s- and America’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]”. The street is paved with bricks and is an amazing site to see. Hordes of tourists come every year to see this famous street”

He also wants, “The Installation of the unique San Francisco’s Cable Car from a suitable location in St. Patrick Street to the summit and return.’

All this from a Councillor that is incapable of getting a pothole filled, Fine Gael must be very proud?

What a nutcase 😀 Stupidest plan I’ve ever heard for Cork. A cable car? Up a crooked Patricks Hill?
