Marquee site sells for €15 million...

It was announced recently that the Marquee site next to Pairc Ui Chaoimh has been sold for €15 million with the potential for 1000 homes going there.

As can be seen from the photo above, the site outlined in Red is next to the Centre Park Road / Monahan Rd circuit (in yellow) which is used for the annual Cork BHAA John Buckley Sports 5k.

A few years back, this circuit which is close to the centre of Cork City was used on a regular basis for 5k races. As the Marquee site gets developed and with a new bridge going across to Tivoli, this whole area is going to become a lot busier in the future. It's probably only a matter of time before a 5k race will be impossible to be held there.
