Cork City Council purchase a site for proposed amenity park in Blarney

Amenity. As Cllr Damian Boylan told The Muskerry News, “I am delighted to be able to announce that I have been successful in getting Cork City Council to purchase the 6.5 acres across from Shamrock Terrace, for the purpose of providing a park for our area. “This beautiful meadow and riverside walk will be available to the people and I am sure will be of benefit to our children and grandchildren. The park will be a wonderful addition to the other public spaces in Blarney and will be of great use to clubs, schools, organisations and our community. Its proximity to the village lends itself to so much. “There is a bit of work to be done over the coming months and years to make this area as good as it can be. I am sure that the community and the council will work together to ensure that this amenity will be the best it can possibly be. The medium-term plan would be to link this area with the beautiful Waterloo walk ensuring that our community can have a stunning woodland and riverside walk from Waterloo right down to Shamrock Terrace.” He concluded by thanking Cork City Council and Gerard Forrest who initially flagged the idea and worked with him throughout the process.”
