Cllr. Donnelly welcomes the support of Passage West Town Council for his motion on world heritage status for Cork

17th April 2009

At last night’s meeting of Passage West Town Council, a motion calling for the town council to support the application for Cork City and Harbour to be put forward for UNESCO World Heritage Site status was unanimously supported.  The motion was proposed by Cllr. Dominick Donnelly, the Green Party member of Passage West Town Council and candidate for Cork County Council.


Cllr. Donnelly said:  “I welcome the support my fellow councillors have given to my motion, and I hope that similar motions which are to be put before the City and County Councils, as well as Cobh Town Council, will all be unanimously supported also.  Achieving UNESCO World Heritage Site status is a worthy aim, and would be a huge boost to the area in terms of tourism and cultural activity.  There is a long way to go in the process yet, but all forms of support for the process are welcome.”



Full text of motion:  “Passage West Town Council fully endorses the application currently before the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government to have Cork City and Harbour put forward for consideration as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.”
