From what I saw on the paper, Ascon are looking for a licence to dredge 9000 tonnes of spoil from the river bed at the location of the proposed bridge..
Work is planned between mid August and mid September.
I assume it is the Gouldings site and the Irish Shell site that the HSA are concerned about
:rolleyes:Great to see that our city fathers have such faith in our public transport system that they plan to increase the cost of on street parking fees dramatically in an effort to force those who have not had the pleasure of using our light rail system, modern buses, and riverboats to do so.
Does this mean that our officials will use our transport system and forgo the unlimited free city center parking they enjoy? Given that we sold Navigation House to OCP at a 4 million discount to ensure free parking for city staff I would not hold my breath on that one.
Still our staff are extremely busy at present, and are working flat out to complete the ;)purchase (bail out) of unsold housing stock that is â€œbuildingâ€ daily, the last thing they need is to worry about is, if the bus will blown a head gasket again while stuck in suburban traffic!
Surely the tax payers in Cork have some comeback against the City Manager etc. regarding what I would call an abuse of our money in buying parking spaces for the City Hall staff and at the same time driving ( if you will excuse the pun) the ordinary citizen (who pay their saleries) out of the city by clamping, towing and disc parking in every available spot.March 31, 2008 at 3:08 pm in reply to: reorganisation and destruction of irish catholic churches #771422
If yuo are referring tot he question of the seventh candle, then I would not agree with Jonglas that we are dealing with erudite obscurity. It was prescribed by the Council of Trent and denotes jurisdiction.
The seventh candle was ‘freestanding’ and was moved to each side of the altar by the assistant priest at different times during the Mass.March 6, 2008 at 3:45 pm in reply to: reorganisation and destruction of irish catholic churches #771310
I was not sure at first but Guy’s shop was demolished and replaced by the present building sometime in the 1960s/70s. Even this development has altered the original prospect of the facade. Douglas Scott Richardson, in his bool on Gothic Revival in Ireland, goes into a minor high on the manner in which the various elements of the facade reveal themselves as you progress up the lane way.
I remember at the time that Guy’s shop was demolished and before the Bank of Ireland building went up, it was possible to see St.Peter and Pauls church in its full glory.
I wonder if anyone has photographs from that time?
Ryanair seemed to have added an extra route out of Cork to Bristol but there was no typical Ryanair fanfare about it or I can’t find a timetable on the website. Was this route forecast back along?
It has been suggested that this is a one off for the Munster Heinekin Cup match.
If access was proposed through the Webworks site, Cork City Council should have ensured all was in order before selling (â€œgiving awayâ€) the site to Howard Holdings for the sum of 2,225,000 euro on a 700 year lease @ 10 euro PA rent.
I think these are the buildings on Albert Quay/Albert Street.
Suttons had a coal store there.There also was a fast fit exhaust business there up to a few years ago.

Suffice to say…it’ll be docking at a point below Michael Collins bridge, either north or south bank! An argument beyond this point is merely semantics. Blame Google for their mapping if you disagree with the naming, but it’s not “my” map, I just referred to it…
To err is human, to forgive is divine.
No need to get ‘uppity’
What is shown on your map as Anderson’s Quay (on the right) is, in fact, the North Custom House Quay. (See Port of Cork website if you want confirmation).
As a matter of interest, what is shown as ‘Albert St.’ on your map is Michael Collins Bridge,’ Penrose Quay’ is a continuation of St. Patrick’s Quay and ‘Horgan’s Quay is Penrose Quay.

The 35 minutes does take account of the speed limit.
They will be dropping at Anderson’s Quay. Other than Custom House Quay there is nowhere else they can drop as none of the bridges give sufficient clearance to go further upriver.
I wonder if you mean Penrose Quay.
To get to Anderson’s Quay, they would have to go under Michael Collins Bridge.
what’s happening with this?

I think the leisure club has a lease which does not expire for another year or so.
Nothing can happen until then.Radioactiveman wrote:I’ve got to mention this one as an example of what some developers think they can get away with. An application is with CCC at the moment for permission to knock the former Language institute building on North Abbey Street and replace it with a new building.
Now, a lot of people probably don’t know where the street is, never mind the building! North abbey street is the small lane running west from O’Connors Funeral Home at the bottom of Shandon Street. And the building is at the end of this street, at the junction with the side street running off the North Mall.
It really is a fine victorian building. Its a pity it is in such a cramped position in there and can’t be seen as well as it should. I include the drawings of the present building (dont have an photo) and the proposed piece of rubbish. If CCC have any sense, they won]
That building was the former Shandon Street Garda Station.
A few questions
Is anything happening with the old Irish Rail travel centre on Patrick St? It’s been vacant for a long time and it can’t be part of a site assembly.
Also the Golden Discs store that was up by brown Thomas? That one hasn’t been vacant so long.
Finally, why are there so many businesses for sale on Douglas St at the moment? Is it just coincidence or are a lot of the leases up at the same time or something else?
I believe that yet another shoe store is destined for the Golden Disc store.
These were designed by Beth Gali, the architect for the Patrick Street/Grand Parade revamp.who_me wrote:Did a fair old walk around the city, wish I’d brough my camera with me to take a few snapshots of what’s going up around the city centre.
– Jury’s Hotel is progressing nicely. The hotel itself, the apartment building (I presume) to the East, and the wedge shaped building in between (apartments again) are all up, with another building (at first I thought it was an escalator!) going up behind the apartment building. The Weir Bar on the river (obviously) is a nice spot for a lazy Sunday afternoon.
– The scaffolding has come down on half of the Jacob’s Mill building. Pity.
– The breast check clinic on Anglesea St. flew up without me noticing]
The development at St. Patrick’s House is for Finbarr Gannon.
The addition of 2 extra floors and a total of 13 apartments [what else?]
Thanks for the information.
