“MAJOR ISSUES” with anti-social behaviour are plaguing “tranquil” areas of East Clare.

Speaking at the July meeting of the Killaloe Municipal District, Cllr Pat Burke (FG) flagged the “vandalism and anti-social behaviour” occurring at some popular amenities throughout East Clare.

Among the items referenced by the Whitegate representative were the toilet service block at Mountshannon Harbour and the overnight camping at Dromaan Harbour.

Of the issues at Dromaan Harbour throughout the month of July, he remarked that while Clare County Council have signs stating no overnight camping or parking that the rule is not enforced. “For the two weekends taken over by people flouting every law under the sun, with jet skis on the water and campervans in the car park, I had my knuckles wrapped for speaking on local radio about jet skis,” Burke recounted.

He added, “we have a major issue with anti-social behaviour and people flouting the law, it is scandalous and very disappointing in a quiet tranquil area”.

Throughout the summer months, staff are deployed to Mountshannon for seven days of the week, senior executive engineer Declan Flanagan responded. Damage to the doors and toilet seats have been reported to Gardaí but “we haven’t found evidence of who did it so it is a tough one to target, we noted the issues there”.

Meanwhile, footpath works continue in Tulla with two contracts issued by the local authority, the Church St works will have to be redesigned, acting senior executive officer Morgan Lahiffe confirmed.
