Our Lady’s Isalnd hasn’t a prayer of getting sewerage plant link
DESPITE vociferous appeals by local councillor Ger Carthy Our Lady’s Island doesn’t have a prayer of having its sewerage needs met by Irish Water in the foreseeable future.
Cllr Carthy asked if the Our Lady’s Island sewage could be treated in the same system as sewage from Rosslare is treated in.
Director of Services Eamonn Hore said: ‘At different points in the past there were discussions about Our Lady’s Island but it is not on Irish Water’s agenda anywhere for the Lady’s Island area to be linked with Rosslare Harbour.’
Plans have been advanced by Irish Water for the Duncannon, Arthurstown and Ballyhack area, the plant being one of 21 agglomerations located in counties Clare, Cork, Donegal, Galway and Wexford. Irish Water has now appointed engineering service providers to undertake detailed design, planning and procurement services of the wastewater infrastructure requirements for these areas, but Our Lady’s Island is not on the planned schedule of works.
