Major clean-up for Castlebar river

Fine Gael Castlebar town councillor Ger Deere, has confirmed that the OPW has commenced works at a number of locations along the walls of the Castlebar town river which posed a serious threat to a number of buildings on Linenhall and Tucker Street.

Cllr Deere said: “I highlighted this issue over a year ago and met with Minister Hayes on two occasions and a number of weeks ago I invited the minister down to inspect problem himself.

“Over the last number of years sections of the wall had collapsed and residents and businesses along the section of the river were seriously concerned regarding this issue and had requested action before a serious accident occurred.”

Cll Deere thanks Minister Hayes for his efforts in this matter and also the staff of Castlebar Town Council and the OPW.
