Cllr. Maura Healy Rae has asked Kerry County Council and Irish Water to provide proper sewerage systems in rural towns and villages such as Scartaglin and Currow and a sewerage extension for Castleisland.

Work by Deputy Danny and Tom Fleming

I refer to my recent notice of motion and reply which I raised at the recent Killarney Municipal District meeting on May 1st.

“I stressed the importance that these schemes would have and how critical investment in these areas is needed,” said Cllr. Healy Rae.

“I outlined that previously Scartaglin was third on a priority list following tireless work from Deputy Danny Healy-Rae and indeed Tom Fleming,” she added.

Moving Sewage from Currow to Killarney

Cllr. Healy Rae highlighted the practice of Kerry County Council taking sewage from their council-owned estate in Currow and bringing it to Killarney.

“This is simply something that cannot continue to happen and I outlined that the sewerage extension in Castleisland for people who are living within the reduced speed limits and who essentially live in Castleisland town should not be continued to be prevented from connecting to the public system.

No Return for Taxes

“I stressed that people in these areas are paying taxes and contributing but are seeing no return and that they should at least have these basic services provided.

“I will continue to highlight and raise this issue into the future. Whilst I am disappointed with Kerry County Council’s response I will continue to fight so that these sewerage system schemes and extensions will be carried out,” said Cllr. Healy Rae in conclusion.
