It was. Either way, two units are being amalgamated into one to open a new business on an arcade linking two pedestrianised streets.

Best of luck to the new venture

So ODLL example of a new business is one replacing a venture that shut in the last six months.

Default Ghost Town

Bizarrely, the Councillors seem to support Panaban, or prefer to not disagree with Management at City Hall. This, and amazing flip flopping happens. e.g. Regarding the Kinsale Road Dump, they almost unanimously supported the new Waste Facility (intended to feed the Incinerators) Weeks later utter reversal, so we now a Park instead of a vast Rubbish Processing Plant.

Also, Cork's Lord Mayor used to be cost an enormous amount of money. This was radically reduced, e.g. the salary part from 120K down to 36K or thereabouts.
Now, they are using the daft excuse of an Elected Mayor to more than restore this vast unnecessary expenditure.
They should keep the current salary and expenses, and utterly cap expenditure on election. No posters etc. etc.

At City Hall they blunder from one daft misadventure to the next. Nobody every pays for the persistent mistakes. The dual system of elected and executive should function as check and balance. But in reality they are hand in glove backscratching bath fellows.

You do realise that the directly elected mayors is an initiative coming from central government right? Or is this just another pointless rant with another pointless picture??

So you are unhappy with local government but don't want more a more democratic and accountable process to appoint the leader of local government?

You are just arguing against yourself again there.


Cork needs autonomy to make big decisions and attract both private investment and public funds on a strong local level instead of constantly blaming politicians etc in Dublin.

A directly elected Mayor will be interesting. But I see no justification for it costing the City up to 500K.
I think the term Leader is misleading...... Currently the Mayor and all Councillors appear to have no real power or any influence even on the Executive.

He or She will be very lonely unless they spend time in the burbs with us.
