Cllr Jackie Healy-Rae and Deputy Michael Healy Rae have welcomed news of the fact that funding of €70,000 has been made available for the replacement of 270 metres of an old and deficient three inch cast iron main pipe at Desmond’s Avenue in Castleisland

Irish Water Capital Investment Programme
The funding which was made available from Irish Water Minor capital Investment Programme and was confirmed by Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage Darragh O’Brien in reply to a Dail question to Michael Healy-Rae, TD last December will now finally see improvements to water quality for over twenty houses in Desmond’s Avenue in Castleisland.
Elevated Iron Levels
“I’m delighted that this project will go ahead for the people of Desmond’s Avenue. It has been a long few month for them, some of them who were potentially impacted by the elevated iron levels in their water,” said Cllr. Jackie Healy Rae.

Great News for Castleisland

Also welcoming the news was Deputy Michael Healy Rae who described the funding as ‘great news  for Castleisland.’
“The residents of Desmond’s Avenue have had to endure a tough time with such a basic right as water. In many ways it highlights the facts of poor investment in our water pipe infrastructure over the years, but this is great news for Castleisland and I’m delighted that 207M of this old pipe will be replaced,” said Deputy Healy Rae.
