Laois County Council Offices

An undertaking has been given by Laois County Council to repair the roadside fence at Mountain View estate in Portlaoise.

At the recent meeting of Portlaoise Municipal District Cllr Caroline Dwane Stanley had a motion seeking the replacement of the fence at the estate on the Ballyfin Road.

A written reply from Michael Rainey, SEO housing, confirmed that the work will be done.

“The housing section is currently seeking tenders for the repair of this fence,” his written reply outlined.

“It is expected the work will commence shortly,” he said.


At the same meeting, a timeline was sought by Cllr Dwane Stanley on when works would be carried out where ponding is taking place in a section of Aghnaharna and install extra gullies in the estate.

A written response from engineer Wes Wilkinson confirmed that the installation of an additional surface water gully is now complete.
