Bal­ly­hooly: Wa­ter prob­lems meet­ing

Irish Examiner - County - - News -

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.
