NUMEROUS street lights are out in Killaloe, elected representatives have flagged.

With campaigning from candidates in the upcoming local elections (June 7th) increasing, sitting councillors in East Clare have observed a number of street lights in Killaloe are out of action.

Cathaoirleach of the Killaloe Municipal District, Cllr Tony O’Brien (FF) requested that a new street light be erected on Church Street in Killaloe.

Acting senior executive engineer in the Killaloe MD, Declan Flanagan outlined that the Killaloe Ballina Town Enhancement and Mobility Plan “seeks to enhance the public realm of Killaloe are improvements to public lighting will be a key element of the plan. As part of this plan, a comprehensive approach to the design of streetscape, surfaces and public lighting locations are proposed”.

Flanagan said the public lighting at Church Street in Killaloe has been reviewed by local authority staff. As part of this they deem that an additional public light is warranted on Church Street on approach to the junction with royal parade. “We have raised this with our roads department’s public lighting team for their action”.

This commitment was welcomed by Cllr O’Brien who stressed that the street light was required in the area.

Seconding the proposal, Cllr Pat Burke (FG) commented, “I’m sure you are aware there is a number of street lights out in Killaloe which you would have reported”.
