Councillor calls for firewood for elderly

walshSmFine Gael Cllr Leo Walsh has yesterday called on the Limerick city and county councils for any trees owned by the local authority that had fallen down due to the recent storms to be made into fire wood for old age pensioners.

Cll Walsh said that the firewood would ‘alleviate pressures they are under from soaring costs of fuel’.

The Cllr is also appealing to farmers or any other citizen to donate any wood that they do not require to make fire wood available to the elderly in their local community.
