IT would take €20,000 to replace up to 30 public lights in Tullow. The lights have not worked in nearly three years.
The matter was raised at the monthly meeting of Tullow Municipal District by Councillor Will Paton who noted: “That Carlow County Council repair the line of 39 broken lights from Tullow Town Park to Abbey Street.”

In response to the motion, area engineer Pat Harrington said he inspected the lights recently and confirmed that there were in fact 28 lights not working. He hoped that these can be replaced at a cost of around €19,000.
Mr Harrington suggested that the funding could come from development levies and discretionary fmprovements funds.
Councillor Paton said: “You can see it there… the lights are wrecked.”
