Having broken 31 different times at different places along its route from Breahig Cross to the church in Cordal, the problems with the old water supply pipe have left the road like a patch-work quilt.

Cllr. Charlie Farrelly was delighted to announce the start-up of the supply pipe replacement work at Breahig Cross early this morning.

Wearing his Cordal Hat

Quite literally wearing his Cordal hat, he thanked fellow councillors, Fionnán Fitzgerald and Jackie Healy Rae for backing motions he had put forward at meetings since their election.

It was an election promise he made to the people of Cordal and he was anxious to see it being carried through.

Asbestos Pipe to be Replaced

Cllr. Farrelly pointed out that the old asbestos pipe had done its duty to the area and for obvious reasons, health of the local population not being the least of the concerns, it will be replaced.

That pipe will now be replaced by steel, plastic coated piping and its the fulfillment of a commitment made recently by Cllr. Farrelly and of a far longer term promise by Kerry County Council and now Irish Water.
