No sign of that entrance that was opening on time this summer being opened...

In the meantime, the issue of development on the larger area of the site has reared its head again

http://www.irishexaminer.com/breakin...de-804981.html

It's not clear whether CIE will get 10% of the development value (16m) or 10% of the future rental income (approx 900K pa based on Cork commerical yields).

There's an interestingly located train in the first image. At the moment, that line is only used for empty workings (back in the day, the really early train to Dublin used to use it by leaving towards Cobh and doubling back). I hope it means that the line will be retained. While there's absolutely no need for additional platforms towards Dublin/Mallow/Killarney at the moment, the land should be held back in case it is ever needed in the future.
