Both the Delfin and the An-2 (seen in the background of the photo on Airliners.net) were both at Dolly's Grove last time I saw them and to the best of my knowledge they are still there. Neither are in flying order. The An-2 does not have the wings attached while the Delfin is in one piece and last time I saw it looked in reasonably good condition.
There's a bit of info about the airfield in Kevin Glynn's VFR Guide but remember visitors by invitation only

There were two AN2's at Cork around the same time. The first one was the aircraft Mark mentioned as being in Dolly's Grove, the other (pictured) was used for spares and was always in that condition whilst based in Cork. The good AN2 flew for a good few years, but again I think it fell into the same hole as the Delfin, where it's CofA lapsed. I last saw it running (if thats the right word) in about 2001, but it was not flying. Unfortunately it toppled in a storm a few years ago and severly damaged the wing. Then in late 2003 or maybe early 2004 both aircraft were dimantled and moved to Dolly's Grove.
The other AN2 (pictured) still resides at the airport fire ground and is used for fire training...
