Hearing into Cobh cathedral plans
The Irish Times
An oral hearing by An Bord PleanÃ¡la into the controversial re-ordering of the interior of St Colman’s cathedral, Cobh, gets under way in at the Midleton Park Hotel, Co Cork, tomorrow. Three days have been set aside to hear submissions. Six parties have lodged appeals against the decision by Cobh Town Council last September to grant planning permission to the trustees of the cathedral for the re-ordering of the interior of the cathedral. Fr James Killeen, spokesman for Bishop John Magee of Cloyne, who is behind the interior design plans for the cathedral, yesterday declined to comment on the hearing. Among the objectors are the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government, An Taisce, the Irish Georgian Society and Friends of St Colman’s Cathedral.
On a point of information. There are four appellants to the planning decicion of Cobh Town Council, not six. In some newspapers, the Arts Council and the Trustees of St. Colman’s are being named as appellants when in fact the Arts Council was asked by An Bord Pleanala merely to comment on the proposal and the Trustees of St. Colman’s are the Applicants. But then one doesn’t expect too much accurate information from the media. On of them makes a mistake and the others take it up like lemmings.:rolleyes:
