Independent Councillor says its not acceptable that the people of Murrisk, Lecanvey and Louisburgh have no public water supply or sewerage scheme

122,000 people climbed Croagh Patrick between February 2016 and February last, and yet Murrisk, Lecanvey and Louisburgh the hinterland of the Holy mountain have no public water or sewerage supply.

It’s not acceptable according to local independent councillor Christy Hyland. The councillor raised his concerns at this week’s monthly meeting of Mayo county council.

He said that a people counter is at place at the reek for two years now, and the figure 122,000 was recorded over a 12 month period last year.

The councillor told Midwest News that one of the most important tourism area in our county has been left without adequate basic infrastructure.
