Work on The Thatch
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.
