Youghal Boardwalk Extension
Plans for an extension to the boardwalk in Youghal are moving ahead. Cork County Council has issued tender documents for Phase II of the project seeking contractors to build a 1.1 kilometre, two metre-wide wooden boardwalk between Claycastle car park to the Youghal Quality Hotel at Redbarn. Phase I of the project was completed in January 2012 at a cost of €220,000 when a 400-metre boardwalk was built between Youghal Town Centre and Claycastle. However, the boardwalk was destroyed during the winter of 2014 and required extensive refurbishment before reopening in 2015. It was always proposed to extend the boardwalk further to Redbarn. According to the tender documents, the Council hopes to have the boardwalk design, constructed and handed over within 12 months. The deadline to respond to the tender is March 8.

Results of opinion poll on Youghal’s Future Needs. Youghal Chamber of Tourism and Commerce conducted an online opinion poll on Youghal’s Future Needs, the following is a breakdown of the results.

We are mindful of getting the best return on the scarce monies available and would encourage the members to invest wisely in the towns services. We would encourage a joint delegation to the various incoming Government Ministers which could / should secure much needed Capital Funding for the larger projects.

This was highlighted as a major weakness to the Town securing Industrial Investment in the past.

Green Light for Youghal Pontoon As Funding Approved
Cork East Fine Gael TD and Minister of State at the Department of Justice, David Stanton has welcomed the funding announcement of €112,500 for the development of a pontoon and gangway in Youghal. “The announcement is great news for Youghal and will allow for the supply and installation of a pontoon and gangway in Youghal Harbour. Cork County Council has done a huge amount of work to get this project underway and has already secured the necessary planning permission and foreshore licence to allow the development to proceed”, said Minister Stanton. “Last year eight visitor buoys were put in place in Youghal harbour and these have been very successful in attracting marine leisure tourism to the town. I am confident that the pontoon will build on the success of these buoys and greatly enhance Youghal’s marine tourism offering and lead to an increase in visitors to this historic town. “This funding is another substantial investment in Youghal’s tourism product. In addition to the development of Youghal’s heritage trail which includes the Raleigh Quarter, the medieval town walls, St Mary’s Collegiate Church and gardens next door, Youghal Clock Gate was opened to the public at the end of last year and […]
