NOTICE has been given to the owners of derelict buildings on North Main Street setting out what is required to bring them up to standard.

It comes following the one year anniversary of the partial collapse of number 63, which has been surrounded by hoarding since.

Traders on the street have described the situation as “soul-destroying”, while it’s thought there may also be some interest from a private developer to purchase the buildings.

Councillor Mick Finn asked senior management in Cork City Council for a progress report on the partially collapsed building being held up by an iron frame.

He said urgent action on the “eyesore” is now required.

“A dubious one-year anniversary of the building collapse occurred lately. It really is frustrating and somewhat sad to see this building in the state it is, as other business owners try their best to breathe life into the street,” he said.

“I was informed that notice has been given to the owners via a Receiver setting out what is required and I call on them to take action on this blot on the North Main Street landscape.”
