Fine Gael TD Alan Dillon has been given an update on the €6.2m Murrisk community water connection.

The new Distribution Main network will involve the installation of approximately 29km of main, ranging from 32mm to 90mm OD, with associated valves and fittings, and all works are to be carried out as per the Irish Water’s Water Infrastructure Standard Details.”

Deputy Dillion said the “The cost of the project is €6.2 million, with €5 million being provided by the State. I look forward to hearing a tender has been approved and a start date confirmed.

‘I want to congratulate the members of the Murrisk Community Water Connection Committee, local Cllr Peter Flynn and Michael Ring TD and everyone that has made their local contributions so the water supply can be extended to the communities of Killadangan, Deerpark East, Murrisk, Glaspatrick, Thornhill, Lecanvey, Kilsallagh and Furrigal.”
