Re: Re: what’s going up in Cobh
An interesting tit bit I came across today. Some of you who live in Cobh may remember some years ago there was a landslide just above Leonards Lodge. Cllr. Stella Meade has a house up there and has been trying for some time to sell at a price c. €200.000. The only access to her house was via 67 steps up from Leonards Lodge. Well lo and behold when the work was undertaken to shore up the land below her house a new private road was build to service 3 or 4 houses and suddenly her house is on the market for €700,000. Not sure if it sold but it is interesting that the tax and rate payers in Cobh should be funding a private road which just happens to benefit one of the councillors to the tune of half a million euros.
