Rathdowney Health Centre and other improvement works underway – Fleming
Sean Fleming T.D., Minister of State at the Department of Finance is pleased to confirm that significant improvement works are currently underway at the Health Centre Rathdowney. These works include the provision of wheelchair access, improvement to the footpaths and other safety measures.
“I want to thank the HSE for approving the funding for these works and I have spoken to the workers on the site who say that the construction works are at an advanced stage(Photo attached). These works will be of benefit to everybody who uses this busy health centre. Well done all round.”
The above works are in addition to other important improvements in Rathdowney:
- I announced a €100,000 grant to Laois County Council to work with the people in Rathdowney to draw up a plan to revitalise the centre of Rathdowney. I am calling on all involved to work on this plan straightaway so that further funding can be drawn down to implement the plan when it is completed.
- Recently the Government announced a major capital grant for Dawn Meats in Rathdowney for improvement works to be carried out in the processing and marketing of their products, which includes major improvements to refrigeration facilities and other works in the plant in the town.
- The work on improving the street surface and markings at the bottom of the square and out through Ossory Street and Pound Street have recently been completed and is an excellent job.
- It’s good to see the roof replacement works on the library in Rathdowney have recently been completed and it will make this facility better for all who use it locally.
- Also resurfacing on the Errill Road as you go out from the town has been very beneficial to all who use this busy road.
“Rathdowney is an expanding town and it is only right that extra resources be provided to improve services and the quality of life for everybody in the area.
As Minister of State in County Laois I am pleased that the Government has provided funding for all of these projects in the town which is being delivered through various State Agencies and Bodies including: Laois County Council, Department of Agriculture and the HSE.”
