Limerick Labour Party councillor Conor Sheehan

A LOCAL councillor has questioned the council on CCTV cameras along a popular route for walkers and cyclists.

Labour Party councillor Conor Sheehan quizzed the Council on which CCTV cameras are turned on in the Canal Bank area from Leila Street to the University of Limerick and Shannon Fields.

According to the Council’s Head of Digital Services Alan Dooley, the Canal and River Bank CCTV scheme, operated by the local authority, consists of 11 poles with two cameras on each giving a total of 22 cameras.

“At present, 22 cameras are recording back to our monitoring centre located at the Moyross Community Enterprise Centre. These cameras are not live monitored,” he said.

“They are recording only. The only pole which is currently not connected to the scheme is expected to be online in the coming weeks,” Mr Dooley concluded.
