Prominent City Site Sold

Eoghan Dalton Reports
A long-empty site in the City has been sold and plans are nearing completion for it to be transformed for retail use.
The land was the location of an Esso service station and is at the junction of the Tramore and Cork Roads, across from the Holy Ghost. It’s understood it is being secured by a local developer.
It’s set out to be a mixed use development, comprising retail units and potentially a surgery. The site has been empty since 2004.
The site landed in GMC’s books in March earlier this year and the auctioneers found there to be plenty of interest from developers. Managing Director Garret McCarthy said the final details are still being arranged for the sale and he expects an update on the site in the coming weeks.
Speaking on the development, Cllr John Cummins (FG) said the site’s location is too important to be left idle: “It’s a derelict site right on our main artery in and out of the city so any development there would obviously be welcome.”
