Re: Re: Developments in Cork
Speaking of the riverside, have people had a look at the new Peace Park at the end of South Mall and the Grand Parade? It’s looking really, really well, BUT.. they really have just plonked it on top of what was there. That area had some of the nicest stone-work quay wall in the city, and much of it now has been cemented over, and a large concrete slab has covered over the steps up the quayside completely. Did Ms. Ghali (or whoever the architect was) ever visit the site, or did they just design the park first and decide to stick it there?
It’s not exactly subtle..
There is a boardwalk planned between the Nano Nagle bridge and the first building to the east of it, similar to the one outside the Clarion. It may be that once the boardwalk is in place, the concrete beam will not be visible.
The monument to the dead soldiers has been nicely done up, it will all look very well I think when finished. The Grand Parade has turned out nicely. All credit to the lads….
