Wednesday, 11th October, 2017 4:56pm

Calls have been made for the seats at the South Gate Bridge to be removed. 

Independent Cllr Paudie Dineen has asked that Cork City Council that the seats situated near the bike stand at the South Gate Bridge be removed “as quickly as possible”.

Cllr Dineen said that the seats are an attraction for anti-social behaviour and promote on street drinking of alcohol.

He said: “The area is steeped in history with many tourist attractions close by and the area has become an eyesore on this particular tourist trail.”

He also said the seating is causing difficulties for local rate payers who’s trade is effected through no fault of their own.
