A NEW BINGO facility will create 30 new jobs in Cork this year.

The 1,000-seat Rock Bingo venue is due to open at the old Waters Glass premises in Togher, Cork, and the recruitment process for staff has begun. The Waters Glass facility closed last March with the loss of 16 jobs; it had employed 65 people at its peak.

The family-owned operation is being run by James Barber, his two sons and his brother. Barber says he had been “diligently looking for a new business” to replace the jobs lost at the premises earlier in the year.

The Bingo Rock operators say that bingo on this scale does not currently exist in Cork, but has been popular in Dublin and is enjoying a revival in recent years as a cost-effective night out.

Barber said: “In a recession you have to look for different types of opportunities and this venture will not only create jobs for the locality, provide funds to worthy causes but it also provides a new, fun and exciting entertainment centre for Cork people.”

The positions available include openings for management, floor, security, cashier, office, parking and cleaning staff. Job applications can be sent by email to or by post to Dave Barber, Rock Bingo Club, Togher, Cork.
