Calls have been made for more lights to be erected in Attanagh Village at the recent Municipal District meeting of the Borris-in-Ossory/Mountmellick district.
Indpendent Cllr Ollie Clooney called for the lights after describing Attanagh as ‘Ireland’s darkest village’ with just one street light in the whole village.
He said: “There was once three lights in the village, there is now one.
“They are nice, humble people in Attanagh and all they’ve wanted is lights.”
In response, Engineer Farhan Nasiem assured that the Public Lighting section will review this section for additional lights at this location.
Any new light installation will be subject to the funding available.
Cllr Clooney added that he appreciated the response and hopes the matter will be resolved.
