Taoiseach says Cork is in the middle of a transformation

The Taoiseach says it’s important to listen to what visitors to the city have to say about the place.

Micheál Martin was speaking after well-known CNN host Richard Quest said he enjoyed the English Market but described the city as looking ‘tired’ in an interview with the Irish Independent.

The Lord Mayor of Cork, Cllr Colm Kelleher said he disagrees with the description and cited several completed and planned projects such as the Marina Park and the regeneration of the docklands.

Speaking to RedFM News, Taoiseach Micheál Martin says Cork is in the middle of a transformation.

“I’d love to talk to Richard again because I spoke to him the night before, I did an interview with him, and I told him he had to go into the English Market, give the heads up to the English market because.

“Seriously, we have to take on board what people coming to visit say, and there was no doubt the city is going to transformative period in terms of the city centres of the future.”
