A report on the need for additional street lighting at St Joseph’s Terrace in Clarecastle is to be brought before elected members of the Ennis Municipal District.
An appeal for additional lighting at the Clarecastle housing estate was issued by Cllr Paul Murphy (FG) at the May meeting of the Ennis Municipal District. “There are parts of the older development in particular that are poorly lit,” he highlighted.
Murphy’s proposal was seconded by Cllr Clare Colleran Molloy (FF).
In response, senior executive engineer, Eamon O’Dea detailed that the matter had been referred to the public lighting engineer within the local authority. A report will then be sought from the Council’s public lighting maintenance contractor.
O’Dea stated, “the report will be brought back to the councillors for their consideration”. An outline price is to be drawn up while a design has already been completed.
He calculated that it would not be a serious costing but cautioned, “we don’t have very specific funding we can use for it, I have no purse to do public lighting out of”.
