Cavan County Council own land for the treatment plant.
During consultations with officials in the Office of the Minister for Local Government, Darragh O’Brien TD on the County Development Plan last year I raised the need for a specific funding stream for this type of investment as Irish Water.
The recent announcement by Minister O’Brien of €50 million under the Rural Water Programme for just such a scheme allows Cavan County Council make an application for funding.
Last week I, along with Brendan Smith TD & Cllr. Seán Smith, made the case for funding to Minister O’Brien during his visit to Cavan.
It is now for the Council Executive to put the case together to support the application.
Given the great community facilities at Drumlane GAA Club, local childcare, playground, shop, pub/restaurant, church and primary school it makes sense to facilitate further future development.
