€1.59 million has been allocated by the Government for the construction of nine houses at Colbert Terrace in Abbeyfeale and for the completion of work at the junction of Colbert Terrace and New Street.

Welcoming the announcement, Minister of State Patrick O’Donovan said the allocation was the result of a lot of work by a number of local people, especially Councillor Liam Galvin.

“I know from the time that I was a Councillor that this junction has been an issue and Councillor Liam Galvin has been consistent in his wish to have investment made in the area,” the Minister explained.

The money is being allocated by the Department of Housing to Limerick City and County Council and Minister O’Donovan said he believes that the significant investment will both assist in the renewal of the junction and also assist in terms of responding to the housing need.

“Since being appointed as a Minister I’ve worked with my Government colleagues to get investment for County Limerick. This is yet a further example of that and having worked with Limerick City and County Council over that period of time to prioritise projects, I’m glad to see delivery,” he concluded.
