Paddy Cahill writes:
A little bit late but the deadline for observations to An Bord Pleanála is tomorrow [Tuesday] at 5.30pm for observations about the proposed development at Hendron’s Building.
The proposal is to build a large co-living scheme there around the building (one of the few Modernist buildings on the city’s Record of Protected Structures).
I made a quick video (above) the other day about the building…More details here.

A short documentary looking at Dundanion Court, a futuristic housing scheme built in Cork in 1964.
Filmmaker Paddy Cahill writes:
