I agree. We need Dublin to tell Cork City what it's boundary is, ignoring the views of locals.The government is a acting disgracefully by kicking the can down the road by making the councils negotiate and should just unilaterly implement the report.
I'm living in Cork City. The City needs to expand if it's to be a sustainible second/third city. It hasn't expanded in 50 years.I agree. We need Dublin to tell Cork City what it's boundary is, ignoring the views of locals.
More Dublincentric decision structures should be demanded.
I don't live there, but I completely agree with you.I'm living in Cork City. The City needs to expand if it's to be a sustainible second/third city. It hasn't expanded in 50 years.
Now that's insane.Give unto the City what it deserves. Kerry gets west Cork, Tipp can have Mallow and Waterford takes Youghal - or just merge into the CCCC (Council of the city and county of Cork).
It does matter as it would be a cash cow for the county council that is now lost to the city council.Now that's insane.
I think the best thing would have been to expand the city down the rail line to Carrigtwohill. A combined committee of City and County could have decided which projects were most in need and to allocate funding accordingly.
The County should realise too that the big rate payers of Little Island exist because of the proximity to Cork City. Each is dependent on the other.
The border of the City and County doesn't matter, it's where money is spent and collected is the issue.
