An upgrade and extension to the existing public toilets in Lahinch are scheduled to open in May 2019.
On Tuesday, Clare County Council signed a contract with O’Brien Builders & Civil Engineering Contractors Ltd. for the delivery of an upgrade and extension to the existing public toilets in the seaside town of Lahinch. Included in the project is the supply of female, male and disabled access toilets, baby/parent room, storage room and a disability access ramp.
Mayor of Clare, Councillor Michael Begley stated, “The existing public amenity facilities provided at Lahinch Seaworld are no longer fit for purpose and need to be upgraded in order to provide modern sustainable and accessible facilities that can cater for additional capacity using an improved layout at this busy seaside resort along the Wild Atlantic Way.”
“Continued investment in Clare’s popular seaside towns and villages is important to ensure that the local communities and visitors to these areas can access modern, fit-for-purpose facilities,” commented Council CEO, Pat Dowling.
Carmel Kirby, Director of Physical Development, added, “The commencement of construction work on the public toilets in Lahinch follows the recent delivery of a newly refurbished and extended toilet block and the upgrade of the lifeguard station at Spanish Point. Clare County Council is also planning improvements to the public facilities in Kilkee.”
