Covid-19

The outbreak of the Covid-19 virus in Ireland is both unexpected and unprecedented in modern times. We are well aware of the protective restrictions in place to reduce the spread and impact of Covid-19 within our communities. However we remain committed to keeping you informed about the progress of the project as we continue to work towards a planning application.

As we continue to work in accordance with protective measures outlined by the HSE and Government, our commitment to keeping you up-to-date is as important as ever. We will be posting all our updates for this project on the project website. We remain contactable through phone, text, email and by post if needs be.

We are now actively working to find new and innovative engagement solutions to provide you with the best possible access to timely project updates as they become available in case these restrictions are extended further over the next few weeks and months. We will keep you posted on developments.

Keep safe.
