Cork East Fine Gael TD, David Stanton has, today, written to Cork County Manager asking him to investigate putting in place toilet and shower facilities at Youghal Strand.
“Every year thousands of people travel to Youghal, in particular over the summer months, to enjoy Youghal Strand, yet there are no proper toilet or shower facilities available there. I think, in this day and age, it is vital that such facilities be made available. I am asking Cork County Council to examine putting such facilities in place as soon as possible.
Deputy Stanton went on to say how important the tourism industry is to the people in Youghal.
“With many industry closures in Youghal over the past few yours much effort has been put into developing local tourism. Youghal Strand is a wonderful natural amenity and I believe everything should be done to enhance its attraction to tourists. The River Blackwater estuary on the outskirts of Youghal also has great potential for further touristic development as does the historic town centre.
“I hope that Cork County Council will look upon my request favourably and examine the possibility of developing toilet and shower facilities along Youghal Strand.
