Re: Re: Developments in Cork
Cork Conference Centre:
In 1998 O’Callaghan Properties under bid for 111 acres of land in Mahon was accepted by CCC as the best for the city.
One of the reasons given for not accepting a higher offer was that OCP were to provide an Exhibition / Trade centre for the city or pay the city 6 million euro in lieu.
Nine years on, following a query on the matter from Cllr.Patrica Gosch to the City Manager, the city is to abandon the idea of having a conference centre in Mahon, the city is now to call in the 6 million (a sum that was not index linked) and is to start again from scratch to attract interest in the provision of such a centre.
:rolleyes: Roll on 2017!! 😮
