West Cork Alliance Meeting Skibbereen

An important meeting is to be held in the West Cork Hotel Skibbereen on Monday May 20th at 8.30pm

The public meeting is being held by the West Cork Alliance to highlight and discuss the  proposed changes to structures in West Cork Development Partnership, West Cork Rural Transport, Bantry Hospital and possible changes to Social Welfare payments through the local Post Offices. There is also a proposal to ‘align’ many services to the Local Authority not only in West Cork but throughout Ireland. The concern is that ‘align’ may mean ‘taking over’

These issues will be discussed in an open forum and everybody is invited to attend. All public representatives as well as stakeholders have been invited to attend as well.

Threat to Rural Transport

Due to the leaked document that was distributed recently this has caused a lot of unnecessary concern among the people who use and depend on Rural Transport Services.

As it was a draft document nothing has been confirmed at this point. Should the situation change West Cork Rural Transport will be informing all the people associated in any way with Rural Transport in West Cork and formulating a plan of action should the need arise.

For the moment however all services remain the same and it is very much ‘business as usual’

Many thanks to all of you who have contacted us with your pledges of support



Happy New Year!

The Board, Management and Staff wishes everybody a very Happy and Prosperous New Year
