Council briefs

Good luck to Ger and Deirdre

Best wishes were extended to Mayor Ger Carthy and Cllr Deirdre Wadding in the forthcoming general election.

Cllr George Lawlor said he wished them well on a 'personal level and on a political level I look forward to see you both back in the chamber'.

Dog seizure

The decision to put down a large number of dogs after they were seized in a rural property near Ferns was made on a case by case basis.

Cllr Deirdre Wadding said she had received a large number of queries as to why so many dogs were put down.

Director of Services Tony Larkin said that the vet had made an individual decision based on each animal and its condition. He said the decisions were made on humanitarian grounds rather than for management.

Works needed in Killinick

Safety works need to be carried out in Killinick to prevent a tragedy occurring.

Mayor Ger Carthy said there were four main roads there and traffic calming measures are needed. He said that the fact that the stretch of road is governed by 100km/h speed limit 'beggars belief'.

'We need a plan to adjust the speed limit'

Sports Active Wexford

Sports Active Wexford (SAW) is on a mission to get people moving.

Cllr Frank Staples said that SAW is very involved in promoting fitness among young people. He said the organisation is trying to get one per cent of the county's population off the couch each year for the next ten years.

He complimented the work being carried out by Fran Ronan and Mary Kehoe there.

Shana Court praised

The work on the newly open Shana Court in Coolcotts has been commended.

Cllr George Lawlor, who had turned the sod on the final phase of the estate last year, said the houses which were built by a local builder were top quality.

He was supported by Cllr Davy Hynes who said it had taken a long time to get the estate finished and said more houses needed to be built in the town.
