A building on Tuckey Street has been cordoned off by Cork City Council after concerns were raised about the stability of the premises.

Cork City Fire Brigade was called to the Cork Christian Bookshop, beside Hillbilly’s takeaway at 8.20pm after a local resident noticed structural damage to the exterior of the building.

The top of North Main Street has been cordoned off since June 2019 when the partial collapse of a building on the street saw the road temporarily closed.

Then in September a woman was struck by falling debris from the former Moderne building, now Superdry clothing store, on St Patrick's Street.

In March, Washington Street was closed after a partial building collapse and in May, two women suffered minor injuries when timberwork fell from the Queen's Old Castle building, where Dealz is located on Daunt Square.
