DEVLIN CRITICAL OF REMOVAL OF TREES AROUND FORMER GOLF CLUB LANDS
Local Councillor Cormac Devlin has criticised the developers of the former Golf Club lands and the Council's area planners for not retaining more trees on the lands. In early March, tree surgeons moved in to cut down hundreds of mature trees that surrounded the perimeter of the former Golf Club lands causing annoyance and up-set to surrounding local residents. Cllr. Devlin stated that he is "not only concerned about the lack of protection afforded to the mature trees however I am also particularly concerned for the wildlife (foxes, squirrels and birds) who now have no where to go and a plan must be put in place to rescue these animals."

WORKS AT CARRICKBRENNAN GRAVEYARD
As your local Councillor, I wanted to inform you about about the on-going boundary site works at the Carrickbrennan Graveyard. The Council have stated for safety reasons it has decided to take down the leaning front wall and that works will take place over 2 weeks. A recent inspection by a historic building consultant and consulting engineer, found that the front wall of Carrickbrennan Graveyard, which fronts onto Carrickbrennan Road was leaning dangerously inwards. The wall does not form part of the original graveyard and the original front wall still lies intact 4 to 5 metres inside the front wall and is sound. This will expose the original front wall to the graveyard and allow the area in front to be grassed over and maintained to a good standard.
