Fianna Fail candidate in the local elections Jackie Cahill has called for major remedial work to be carried out on the sewage system in the Oakvale & Oakvale Park areas of Templemore.
‘I was both surprised & disappointed to hear from local residents of the serious issues with sewage in the area. It is blatantly obvious that the sewage infrastructure needs to rectified in Oakvale as a matter of urgency. In an urban area it is amazing that such a situation has been allowed to develop’.
Jackie stated that this is one of the many issues he has encountered on the election trail as the canvassing starts to heat up. He outlined that all of the concerns he has heard so far have given him a real indication of the issues facing residents in all areas. He has given his full support to the local residents in Templemore to bring this environmental concern to the able at county council level if elected.
According to Jackie ‘Local residents have shown a lot of patience and restraint in relation to a service we should all have as a right in 21st century Ireland. It is blatantly obvious that a proper sewage system needs to be put in place’.
