Cllr Finola Armstrong-McGuire has called on the Council to repair the lighting along the Boardwalk at the Linear Park, Carrick-on-Shannon.

Speaking at Monday’s Council meeting, Cllr Armstrong-McGuire said that only 35% of thelights are working at this location.

TheDirector of Service, Planning, Community and Economic Development acknowledged the lights had been damaged in the flooding of 2009.

“Since then some lights have not worked properly. Costings were prepared previously for their complete replacement but funds were not available at that time to carry out the works,” he said.

“Up to date costings will be prepared again for their replacement but adequate funding will have to be sourced to carry out this work,” he told the Council chamber.
