Picture: Clearance work begins on the Midleton-Youghal Greenway (MY Greenway) at the Youghal Railway Station. (25/01/20) The inset photo shows the project route line between Youghal – Killeagh – Mogeely – Midleton.

The Greenway is to be developed on the disused railway line between Midleton and Youghal, incorporating stop-off points at the former stations in the villages of Mogeely and Killeagh. Routed through the scenic agricultural heartland of East Cork with a distinctive character reflecting the natural, cultural and social history of the area the Greenway is set to become an important local amenity and a trip-attracting route for visitors. It is estimated that the Greenway will take approximately two-and-a-half years to fully complete.

Forgot about the environment ☹️. This will not keep traffic off the road except for Summer, long holiday weekend. Not the hundreds of people that would be taking the train ever day to work and bringing lots of people to Youghal for weekend and the Summer improving the long term economy of Youghal.

Train wasn't viable when Youghal was a thriving industrial town, people need 2 wake up to reality

sad to see the short sightedness of this project ,,,, no rail link for youghal in the future ..

Can’t wait..buses go to cork every day.every hour..and into the city ..park and ride..lol..

Bring back the Train 🚂 to Youghal

This is really great to see

Great news

Now is the time to bring the RAILWAY LINE BACK AS WELL .

Olive O'Shea….fantastic.

Leaving i. A few minutes to drive 90 to 120 minutes from youghal to cork. Putting the train service back would have made more sense..🤔😭

🎶 NEW LOCAL MUSIC VIDEO: "The Shadow of the Lady on the Lighthouse Wall" an original song by Robert Michael Cooney, performed by Seshwan. Filmed on location at Youghal International College. Seshwan are a collective group of musicians, mainly from Youghal who gather annually to perform various song compositions and capture them in a live setting.

Lyrics:
Song: The Shadow of the Lady on the Lighthouse Wall
Artist: Robert Michael Cooney
Performed by: Seshwan

The shadow of the lady on the lighthouse wall
She sits on the rocks as the sunset draws
Her hair flowing, arms stretched out towards the sea

The shadow of the lady sets the evening ablaze
The white horses gallop, birds flock just to gaze
at her hair flowing, calling out a melody
To bring us ashore

We follow her call, gaze fixed upon us
She serenades, luring us further
She serenades, it takes us away
Us away, Us away

The shadow of the lady on the lighthouse wall
She sits on the rocks as the sunset draws
Her hair flowing, calling out a melody
To bring us ashore

We follow her call, gaze fixed upon us
She serenades, luring us further
She serenades, takes us away

Away, away, away, away (repeat)

And we all looked on the shadow, of the lady on the lighthouse
We are all hooked on the shadow of the (repeat)
On the shadow of the lady, on the lighthouse wall
We are all hooked on the shadow of the lady on the lighthouse

The Embarrassing Bridge – Youghal Bridge Controversy 1965

This episode of ‘Newsbeat’ was broadcast on 12 January 1965 with reporter Bill O’Herlihy featuring Charles Curran (Waterford), Paddy Linehan (Youghal) and Captain Pat Walsh (Harbour Master).

A new Youghal bridge crosses the Blackwater River but what is to be done with the old dilapidated bridge.

The old bridge connecting Waterford and Cork has been there since 1888. While Waterford County Council is anxious to take down the old bridge the cost of demolition has become prohibitive.

Charles Curran, Chairman of Waterford County Council, explains how the bridge has become an embarrassment. There is strong support in Waterford for removing it by those who believe the dilapidated bridge has become an eyesore.

The people of Youghal, on the other hand, would be disappointed to see the old bridge go according to Paddy Lenihan, a member of Youghal Urban Council. He describes the bridge as a useful spot for anglers and cyclists.

Captain Pat Walsh, Harbour Master explains how fishermen believe that they could improve their catches if the bridge was removed.

This episode of ‘Newsbeat’ was broadcast on 12 January 1965. The reporter is Bill O’Herlihy.

Is it still there?

Cllr Mary Linehan Foley is it ur dad that’s mentioned

I spent my summers for many years in Youghal with relations and we fished off the old bridge numerous times. I can't remember what or if we caught anything though! A lovely memory. Thank you for the post.

Well done YoughalOnline for showing us that great to have it in the archives.

The New Sea Wall and Walkway under construction at the quayside in Youghal, Co. Cork. The flood defence wall is approximately one-metre tall and designed to prevent flooding during stormy conditions which happened back in 2014. A specially made stone sculpture of ‘Captain Ahab’ will also be installed along the walkway. The sculpture, recently completed by Cloyne-based Mathew Thompson, will become a permanent feature on Youghal’s quayside attracting visitors from near and far. The life-size Captain Ahab was specially commissioned by the Youghal4all group, commemorating the filming of ‘Moby Dick’ back in 1954. Inset photo shows the new walkway under construction.

Donal O'Leary, can’t tag Dinny, but we will have to avoid youghal on next night out😆😆😆😆

It looks awful 😥

That looks horrendous. What a shame.

Looks desperate. No taste. Cheap and cheerful. More money for our ministers salaries and pensions.

That looks terrible…what not replicate what they did in Clonmel where slats can be erected when high tide and storm forecast.This changes the whole quayside…..and ruins the view…just plain ugly

Just gives them a higher platform to dive in.

An Embarrassment 🙈

This is what the OPW wants to do to the quays in Cork City !

Is it a coincidence that the Iron Man finish line is now along that stretch? Crowd safety? 🤔

A blot on the seascape

Why wasn’t a flood defence considered like they have in Galway that is not a permanent fixture?😔

That's terrible

For one thing that Dock needs dredging ———- No one will believe this — I have thought about a similar defence It wouldn't be permanent Put in place when the Bad weather and high tides were imminent Large sheets slotted into a recess fixed to the ground ect., Can't knock whats in place but please spend a few Bob to (as best one Can) to make the New Wall Look something like the Dock Wall. There are enough Artists in Town who would give anything to have a Go at that. Just a Thought.. xxx

You can't stop nature

Awful!!

Horrible.

It's just brutal, totally insensitive to our beautiful harbour.

Horrible

If anyone sits on the bench they won't be able to look out to sea, they'll be looking at a concrete wall 🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️

they'll just jump.of the wall now !

The design ??

How sad to see in a town known worldwide for its historic Walls this ugly wall thrown up in the least expensive way to prevent flooding 😡 The town of Youghal deserves better than this😪

Spoiling the beautiful views 😑

Politicians are going to be knocking on your doors, make sure to tell them how bloody awful that wall is.
