Demolition has begun at the suburban shopping centre car park in Cork which was gutted by fire almost three months ago.
Final preparations are being made for the demolition of the fire-ravaged multi-storey carpark which forced the closure of a Cork shopping centre 10 days ago.
Nearly all of the damaged vehicles which can be removed from the multi-storey car park at Douglas Village Shopping Centre have been taken out of the building, but some remain in the section which will be demolished.
Fire officers described the damage to Douglas Village Shopping Centre as “a major structural failure” as plans for partial demolition were announced.
Almost 200 cars remain inside the structure. A process to remove this will begin this week, management confirmed.
A major recovery operation is being planned to remove almost 200 cars — up to 45 of them completely gutted — following a car park blaze which is set to cost millions.
Efforts to return to normal home and business life continued across the weekend in parts of Cork hit by last week’s floods.
