New Helipad for CUH – again?
You’ve heard this before but it is again reported that plans are under way for the restoration of a permanent helipad within Cork University Hospital (CUH) and that planning permission will soon be sought for a pad near Wilton Road which is now used as a car park. Any site must be suited to the Air Corps AW139s and the much bigger Sikorsky S92s of Irish Coast Guard. Currently they have to use the green areas of Bishopstown GAA Club and the Air Corps have also used a nearby private site when that is not available.
