Cork School of Music gets the go ahead

    Minister Noel Dempsey has confirmed that the long-awaited Cork School of Music building project is to go ahead, following almost two years of delays and dead-ends.

    Speaking at the Cork Institute of Technology, the minister for education confirmed on behalf of the government that €60 million was to be allocated to the project in a public/ private partnership.

    Contractors Jarvis are "ready to sign on the dotted line" according to Minister Dempsey, and work should commence by the end of June this year with a view towards providing a facility "custom built for music" by the summer of 2006.

    Reaction to the minister`s announcement has been broadly positive but an attitude of "better late than never" seems to be the overall response.

    About bloody time.... but Jarvis? I saw a Watchdog type programme on on British TV recently about a crowd called Jarvis that weren't paying their contractors -- is this a different bunch?
