All Markets Across County Cork Must Be Suspended With Immediate Effect

Cork County Council has made the call on foot of new Government restrictions

 

The County Mayor says the markets must be suspended with immediate effect and remain closed for the duration of the imposed restrictions

 Cllr Ian Doyle says the new restrictions announced by An Taoiseach yesterday mean that non-essential retail businesses and facilities, under which markets are included, must now close.

The County Mayor says "In normal circumstances, the markets are a valuable social asset and source of great local food, but these are not normal circumstances and in these unprecedented times we must take unprecedented measures".
