Cork North West TD Michael Creed has welcomed the commencement of works in Carrigrua Estate, Ballinagree, Macroom, Co. Cork on Monday next February 16th. Commenting on the works Deputy Creed said:
“I am delighted for all the residents of Carrigrua in Ballinagree that there is finally an end in sight to their difficulties with having their estate and its infrastructure brought to a safe and acceptable condition. I have been informed that contractors will be on site from next week for an eight week period.
“There is great credit due to the residents in how they engaged with all stakeholders to ensure that this matter was dealt with. It is important to acknowledge also the contributions of Cork County Council, the receivers Ernst & Young and the The Department of the Environment who provided funding to progress the required works.
“However the real heroes in this story are the residents of Carrigrua for their resilience patience and positivity in facing up to, and dealing with a very difficult situation. I was delighted to have been able to work with them to ensure their houses could indeed become their homes”.
