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.

Ice Ice Baby in Skibbereen

On Saturday December 17th some West Cork swimmers will enjoy a refreshing ice bath in Skibbereen in aid of West Cork Down Syndrome Support Group.

Steve Redmond (the first man in the world to swim the seven oceans), Nathan Timmons and Noel Browne are currently training to take on the challenge of swimming an 'Ice Mile' next February. Part of their training will involve sitting in ice baths.

On Saturday – behind Field's supermarket – a hot tub filled with ice will be in place from 2pm to 4pm in which these brave men will sit for as long as they can.

Also signed up for the Ice Challenge on Saturday (but who may not last as long as the three Ice Men) are Paudie O'Donovan, Garry Minihane, Niall Murray, Donnacha O'Brien, Brian O'Neill, Mick O'Shea, Sean Murray and Declan Newman.

Stop by to show your support.
