Demolition crews begin work on Cork's Beamish and Crawford site to make way for new events centre

Demolition crews have begun work in demolishing and removing the remains of the old Beamish and Crawford site on Cork's South Main Street.

Design delays on the stalled €53m Cork events centre means it is unlikely to be open in 2018, as predicted at the sod turning in February.

The area is now being cleared to make way for the new 6,000 seater venue.
