WORK has begun on a major upgrade and renovation on the Rosslare Lifeboat Memorial monument.

'The monument is of great significance to the people of Rosslare and the wider community,' said Cllr Ger Carthy.

'My late father Leo was involved in the founding committee and so I'm delighted to carry on our support for such an important and dignified maritime memorial,' he said. Cllr Carthy said just short of €10,000 had been provided by the county council for the works, which are being carried out by Monageer Contracting.
