Ever Lasting Non-Existant Construction Work On Harbour Hill

Published

on

Today Cobh Edition received the following from a concerned resident of Harbour Hill regarding the on-going construction works taking place there.

”I live on Harbour Hill and have seen up to five people having close shaves with cars coming around that corner. Myself and a local business man have tried in vain to see whats going on with the work , I as a health and safety officer even contacted the HSA for advice as there is no notice for construction posted ( AF2) they said they would look into it but, when they got back to me they said it was a joint venture between the Council and a Local Civil Contractor. That same contractor, on investigation kept another road closed for two years in Cobh. I think it wont be long before a patient of Dr Kellehers or someone pushing a pram will get a belt of a car due to the fact the footpath is to narrow to bring a pram up on the opposite side of Dr Kellehers so they have to cross the road in turn putting them in serious danger”.

The cheque of €500 was presented to St. Vincent de Paul on Tuesday evening at the Community Centre. It was part of the proceeds from the Centre’s ‘Christmas Variety Concert’. John Coleman, Chairman of the Cobh Community Centre, thanked all the groups that performed at the concert last December, including nearby colleges St. Mary’s National School, Bunscoil Rinn an Chabhlaigh and Scoil Iosaef. Members of the Fundraising Committee – Manager, Gwen O’Halloran, Majella Smith, Martin O’Leary and Catherine Jefferson – also expressed their appreciation for the spirited and uplifting performances that were given last December by the Children’s Theatre, the Cope Foundation Day Unit, Pop & Rock and the Carrigtwohill Gospel Choir. Thanking the Cobh Community Centre, Liz O’Driscoll and Aine O’Regan from St. Vincent de Paul said, “Our charity receives much focus around Christmas time, which is a great thing, but our work is ongoing, year-round. Therefore, donations at this time of year are especially important to us.”

The Chairman used the presentation of the cheque to St. Vincent de Paul to announce ambitious plans to increase the usage of the Centre’s many and varied facilities. John noted, “Cobh Community Centre has great potential for hosting a variety of both community and commercial activities as well as training sessions. We offer convenience plus first-class facilities. That’s a package that’s hard to top! We are also constantly expanding and upgrading our classes and events. So, there is something here for everyone in the Cobh community…the Centre literally does what it says on the tin!”
