‘Clarecastle needs a kick start’ – town & village renewal scheme scheduled for September start

in Home/News by

Planned works in Clarecastle as part of the town and village renewal scheme will not proceed until Irish Water have tended to issues along Quay Rd and Barrack St.

Funding for 311m advance works in the centre of Clarecastle will be reviewed at Irish Water’s budgetary meetings in July.

Once approval is given, the works which are expected to take four weeks will be scheduled with Irish Water’s contractor Shareridge. “It is likely that the pipe-laying works should be completed in late August (or) early September and the Ennis MD will have tendered the urban and village renewal works to dove tail behind the Irish Water project,” senior executive engineer with the Ennis MD, Eamon O’Dea stated.

His comments came in response to a motion from Cllr Paul Murphy (FG) who sought a time frame on the project. “Clarecastle will need a kick start,” he said and expressed the hope that the contractors would visit the Castle Café to have lunch in the near future and further discuss the plans. Cllr Mary Howard (FG) seconded the motion.
