Solicitor Emma O’Brien, a Director of Clonakilty Chamber of Commerce, has been appointed to a new development board for Cork Airport. The appointment of Emma by Minister Leo Varadkar has come about as a result of lobbying by Fine Gael TD Jim Daly to have a Development Council formed to support the growth of Cork Airport and to include a representative from the West Cork region on the Council.

The purpose of the Development Council is to ensure strong engagement and alignment with key stakeholders in the region ensuring common understanding of the issues, opportunities and operating performance of the airport and to drive coordinated action to further develop Cork airport.

The Council will provide a forum for its members to be informed of Cork Airport activities and for its members to provide timely policy level feedback and advice on matters relating to community and the growth and development of Cork Airport, helping to drive more traffic through Cork Airport on a sustained basis for the benefit of the region as a whole.

Knotweed talk: Sustainable Clonakilty is holding a public talk on the growing problem of Japanese Knotweed next Tuesday 28th February starting at 8pm in O' Donovan's Hotel.

This wild invasive plant is becoming ever more problematic all over the country and is extremely hard to eliminate. It can be very destructive as it’s roots can penetrate hard surfaces such as tarmac and even concrete, causing structural damage to buildings.

In Britain it has serious implications for planning and insurance where it is present. All are welcome to hear how people should deal with Japanese Knotweed in order to prevent further spreading and how to eliminate it where is already exists. There will also be a brief talk on Sustainable Energy Communities, which Sustainable Clonakilty is part of.
