Re: Re: Developments in Cork
- There aren’t enough tourists in the city to justify it Chicken and egg situation.
- There aren’t enough people living on top of the hill to justify it Put tourist attraction up there
- There aren’t enough reasons to go to the top of the hill to justify it see above.
With this kind of attitude nothing will ever developed to attract tourists or locals to the second city which lags so far behind other tourist centres,Killarney,Galway & Dublin.
Knock gets U.S.flights and Cork loses its U.K. ferry ?
Cork has a fantastic new terminal with fewer and fewer flights and a shorter runway than Knock in the middle of nowhere.Where is the political will in Cork for the loss of BUPA,Motorola etc.Limerick get Thomond,Dublin and Belfast get IKEA sorry Dublin get everything and the attendant problems afterwards.Cork does not have even a concert conference venue whilst Killarney has the NEC.Cork needs to wake up.
Put a great park like Park Guell in Barcelona up there ?A viewing tower ? A big wheel jeebus anything to get interest in the city which I find hard to sell to visitors as you could spend maximum a day seeing everything.
Cork needs more great ideas not the usual “Can’t because” attitude.As for doing up the Crawford forget it sell it for retail or Hotel use and build a proper modern gallery in the docklands.Its a no brainer.
Cork has a vision centre but NO vision.
