Cork publican echoes calls for Tánaiste to hold press conference on future of Events Centre
A Cork publican has echoed calls for the Tánaiste to hold a press conference open to the public to clarify the future of the Events Centre.
The sod was turned on the 6,000 seat venue three years ago but to date no construction has taken place.
Fresh fears have been expressed by traders Leeside about the future of the venue after it emerged that €9 million of state funding has been classified as a "re-payable loan".
The local authority recently confirmed that the funding model has not been finalised and it's also been reported that construction will not start until at least June.
Ziggy's bar is located opposite the site of the highly anticipated venue and proprietor James Brown told RedFM News that without an Events Centre - busy weekends are few and far between for traders:
