Re: Re: what’s going up in Cobh
Albeit that this thread is called ‘What is going up in Cobh’, of interest lately is what is coming down. There have been two landslides in the town recently.
The first involved the garden of one of the houses in the Crescent landing down in the yard of the hardware store at the bottom of West View. It was miraculous that no one was hurt. A car and a forklift were buried. Apparently there was a second slide near Bellevue School but I do not know the details.
Seemingly the council have been trying to get money from the Government for this problem, but so far nothing.
I suppose someone will have to die – ( one young man had a lucky escape in that he had just vacated the above mentioned forklift when the slide occurred) or they will need an EU directive banning hills.
