Lack Of Action Leaves Churchtown South Residents At Wits End

Churchtown South Cloyne

Marie O’Connell of the Churchtown South community Council says she could understand if the local authority were slow to respond to mounting community concerns about its crumbling infrastructure.
But the deafening silence the village has received to date was unacceptable.
Ms O’Connell was one of a number of residents who let their thoughts be known at the April sitting of the East Cork Municipality on Monday 3 April.
“We are in dire need of resurfaced roads, signposts so we can be found and likewise tourists can find their way out and our beaches reopened” she told the meeting.
The Community Council representative told the borough, residents were angered and frustrated by the lack of investment in the area.
“We need to have safe access into our village. There are potholes that have been filled and once the rain comes they are washed out again. I don’t think a fix it job is good enough for Churchtown South, it needs resurfacing. People would like a return on the development contributions paid by developers, as well as the property and road tax paid by residents.”
