The Future of Cork's Quaysides?

I really do hope that the next serious floods respect the next legal challenge and simply desist from flooding the Morrisons Island area.
 
It would appear that the self titled "save Cork city" group now has an ideological objection to anything that the OPW or Cork City Council propose, and are quite prepared to use city centre properties as colateral damage just to prove a point and further their agenda.
 
From the "Save Cork City" twitter account:


Sad to see what incompetence can do to a beautiful city like Beirut.

Our thoughts are with the people there who face difficult times.

Imagine using this tragedy to promote your own unelected unrepresentative group's agenda

:rolleyes:
 
Two lessons in a week from Skibbereen and Bandon of what the OPW flood relief works actually deliver. Destruction of the natural and built environment while delivering no actual flood relief. Cork city is next.

I thought Bandon wasn't finished yet or there is some grade work still to be completed nor is Skibbereen although it was meant to be finished this week but put off because of the weather warning, I did laugh.

Skibbereen is essentially done but some culvert work which has been on the long finger forever yet to be finished. Bandon largely done also but the council are blaming some overwhelmed drains while saying the river itself didn't overflow. That's great but a flood relief scheme is only as good as it's weakest link. So if a final job is left undone or drains aren't up to scratch then all the concrete river walls in the world won't stop the flooding.

Same thing flooded douglas back in 2009, some cunts threw a trolley in front of a culvert and it blocked it up over time, ruining loads of places.
