in Home/News by

A new tendering process to appoint a contractor to complete the €14m County Library in Ennis is to commence .

Late 2021 was the original target for completion of the construction of the library building on Causeway Link in Ennis but the pausing of works has pushed this back further.

Keating Construction had initially won the tender to carry out the construction works but the marine and engineering ran into financial difficulties and last week The High Court appointed an examiner for the firm.

On Monday afternoon, a spokesperson for Clare County Council confirmed it would commence a tendering process to appoint a new contractor “shortly”.

“At this juncture we do not have a timeline for the appointment of a completion contractor,” the spokesperson outlined.
