Shandon Clock, 3 September 2014

Further to recent press coverage concerning repair works to Shandon Clock, Cork City Council wish to clarify that although progress on the mechanism is substantially complete, some final testing work will be necessary over the next two weeks before the Clock becomes fully operational. The repair works have been carried out on programme and within budget and the Council, working with Church of Ireland as owners of Shandon Steeple and local clock specialists Stokes Clocks & Watches Ltd. are committed to ensuring that the future operation and maintenance of Shandon Clock is assured.
