A section of road in East Cork remains closed today due to concerns around a subsiding building.
Yesterday evening, Cork County Council closed a section of the R629 at River Street in Cloyne due to part of a three-storey building and a section of an adjoining property subsiding.
The Council said the road was closed off on a "precautionary basis until further engineering assessments are completed".
