A business association is willing to fight the proposed city boundary extension in the High Court.

The Little Island Business Association (LIBA) is against the proposed boundary extension of Cork city. Its CEO Michael Mulcahy said the group is very much opposed to Cork City Council taking in Little Island as well other places like Glanmire, Blarney and Ballincollig.

He said: “It wouldn’t work for us at all. We're totally opposed to it. We have made that clear and we are willing to go to the High Court to challenge the validity of the MacKinnon Report.”

One of the reasons for this, Mr Mulcahy said, is because Cork City Council hasn’t shown LIBA a plan or a cohesive strategy.

He added: “We’ve worked with Cork County Council and we’ve had ups and downs with them. The County Council is investing in the area at the moment. What we are getting may not be everything that we want. However, we certainly know and fell that we are better off in Cork county.”
