Ballyhooly: Water problems meeting
Residents and business owners in the North Cork town of Ballyhooly are holding a public meeting about water problems in the area.
The residents say they have suffered a very poor water supply for more than a decade. The low water pressure means people have difficulty even bathing babies or rinsing their hair, one local points out. Problems with washing machines and dishwashers, flushing toilets and running showers are expected to be mentioned at the meeting, to which local representatives have also been invited.
The problems with the local water supply were highlighted for Cork county councillors at a meeting of the authority’s Mallow/Fermoy committee as far back as 2010 - and locals say the village’s population has grown since then.
The meeting takes place on July 9 at 8pm in the local Community Centre.
