So did I but we’re off to an ominous start…… I wish the man no ill-will and genuinely wish and wished him well but it does require some clarification from the Town Council.
The “Town Architect position” is a position of great importance to everyone on the Island, one that has to be above reproach as he/she has the power to make decisions that effect us all, in pocket, in mind and in legacy to the next generation…….
I hope some reader or lurker with any further insight to the situation, could assist as I for one find these revelations very disconcerting.
Are you sure there is such a position as “Town Architect” for Cobh. Did we not initially inherit the services of one Denis Deasy of the Architects Department in County Hall as Planning Officer. His function as an architect with Cork Co Co being also provided to Cobh for such projects as the redesign of the Promenade.
Pity what should have been his legacy of a laudable design for the Promenade is lost beneath his other legacy of a litany of atrocious planning decisions. Nevertheless I think we should count ourselves lucky that we have the services of our flegdeling Architect in planning as so many Town Councils have unqualified people filling the pivotal roll
