Timber fencing at the entrance to the French Court estate in Ennis is “an eyesore for every resident,” a county councillor has claimed.
Upgrading of the timber fence at the entrance to the Clonroad estate was requested by Cllr Pat Daly (FF) at this month’s sitting of the Ennis Municipal District.
Executive engineer with the Ennis MD, Barry Conway confirmed that the location would be assessed “to determine where responsibility lies for this fence and a suitable proposal will follow on from inspection. If works are required by the council a suitable funding stream will have to be identified”.
Speaking at the meeting, Cllr Daly labelled the fencing as “an eyesore for every resident in French Court”. He added, “the timber fence is all over the place”.
Support for the proposal was voiced by Cllr Johnny Flynn (FG) in what he labelled as a “very important” appeal. “This estate needs to be looked after, the people living there are paying property tax”.
