Fine Gael's Cllr Micheál Carrigy confirmed this week that he has spoken to Irish Water with regard to the pressure issue at Tonywarden, Granard.

Cllr Carrigy said Irish Water have provided him with the following update; “Irish Water and Longford County Council are aware of the intermittent pressure issues in the Tonywarden area.

“This is a legacy issue that typically arises due to increased demand relating to burst pipes in the Granard area.

“Irish Water and Longford County Council will review the network to determine the optimum solution to resolve this issue.

“It will likely take three months to complete this preliminary design works, and if we are able to proceed with the proposal (subject to funding availability) the works are likely to take a further 12 to 18 months to complete.” he concluded.
