Horgan demands answers from Cabinet on Cork Event Centre

01 May 2019

Peter Horgan, Local Election candidate for Cork City Council, has questioned the need for secrecy as another Freedom of Information Request for correspondence was refused based on commercial sensitivity reasons regards the funding for the Event Centre. This follows a sustained campaign by Mr. Horgan to bring details of the project’s funding model to into public knowledge. 

Mr.Horgan said: 

“The reasons for such secrecy have never been fully explained. There have been four items of correspondence relating to this multi-million funding proposal and we can’t see it in public?”

“What are the contents of the correspondence? How will such a loan proposal affect the delivery of services in the expanded Cork City Council area? There questions mounting and mounting on this issue every week and the people of Cork deserve answers.”

“The Cabinet is in Cork today – I hope they will be delivering answers on this issue while here. I want to see this development progress, but not at the ultimate cost of the services underpinning this city. We need full, frank and open details on why is going on.”
