More development for Henry Street, glad to see the end of that derilict yard tbh. Amazing how much it’s cahnged from Bedford Row to O’Curry Street.
New city site purchased for Foriegn Affairs staff
THE Commissioner of Public Works has agreed lease terms on a site in Limerick City for the Irish Aid section of the Department of Foreign Affairs‚ which will be decentralising here.
The site, at the back of the old O’Connell Street County Council offices, facing onto the “sinking church” on Henry Street will, on completion, house the Development Co-operation Directorate (DCD). The git-out date is mid-2007.
Welcoming the news this week, Minister of State Tim O’Malley said that the space in question is sufficient for up to 150 staff and is well located in the business and commercial centre of Limerick.
He added that extensive consultations have taken place between the OPW and the Department of Foreign Affairs, and both bodies are satisfied with this development.
Already some 41 staff members within the Department have expressed an interest in decentralising to these new offices and currently 28 are in place, explained Deputy O’Malley.
