Bannon slammed for criticism of Council

Longford TD James Bannon came in for criticism at the recent meeting of Longford Town Council in relation to his criticism in last week’s Longford Leader of the local authority for not taking up an offer of funding for the swimming pool. The funding, from the Department of Tourism and Sport, involved the provision of increased energy efficiency through the installation of a wood pellet boiler to heat the swimming pool, leaving the current oil-based heating system as back-up.
