County Hall is celebrating 50 years of service to people of Cork today
The landmark building officially opened on April 16th 1968.
A historic day for Cork County Council and the entire county.
That's according to Mayor of County Cork Cllr Declan Hurley who was speaking at today's celebration of 50 years since the iconic County Hall building was opened to the public.
The landmark building opened with the aim of providing a single place for members of the public to access Council services.
It took three years to construct and was the tallest storied building in Ireland up to 2008.
Speaking to RedFM News at today's celebration, Mayor of the County Cllr Declan Hurley says the building is symbolic of the work of the County Council.
