Lord Mayor of Cork Councillor John Sheehan urged the people of Cork to support local businesses in these very difficult and testing times. With each day bringing a new set of challenges to be faced, it is only by supporting each other will we get through this. Many businesses have and will make the decision to close others will try to keep going for as long as possible or as long as they are permitted to remain open. We would ask everyone to consider this when they are making a purchase, even if that purchase is online is there a local Cork, or Irish company that you can use. Then please, please do so, help keep what business there is local we will all benefit from this in the long run. Finally please follow the advice of the HSE take care of yourselves and remember Wash Your Hands.
