Work on the thatch roof at the cot­tage on the Donore Road will start in the com­ing months, it has been con­firmed.

The is­sue was raised at the Novem­ber meet­ing of Drogheda Mu­nic­i­pal Dis­trict by Coun­cil­lor Frank God­frey who said at present bins full of glass bot­tles are what is hold­ing down the tarp which is pro­tect­ing the thatch roof.

‘It’s a sad state of af­fairs,’ he said.

Engi­neer Pat Finn said €10,000 was awarded for this work and the lo­cal au­thor­ity com­mit­ted to fund­ing as well. Work was started and an in­spec­tion was car­ried out but dur­ing this in­spec­tion it was dis­cov­ered that fur­ther work was needed to the walls of the prop­erty first.

Mr Finn said the in­ten­tion was to ap­point a con­trac­tor in the com­ing months to com­mence th­ese works but he said it is an on­go­ing project.
